In my opinion it’s perfectly fine! Decorating for Christmas before Thanksgiving Day is not saying you don’t care about the holiday, you are just excited to decorate for Christmas.

 

Many studies show that decorating earlier can make you happier. A story in the New York Post wrote, ‘Decorating your home for Christmas months before the holiday — even right after Halloween — can make you a happier person, according to a report Friday.

 

Decking the halls early is a spirit-booster because it tends to trigger pleasant childhood memories, and makes folks feel more social, experts and studies show.”

 

When I put up Christmas decorations it makes me think of happier times spending time with friends and family and not dealing with school.

 

“Christmas time should be all the time!” said Elizabeth Cooper.

 

Psychoanalyst Steve McKeown told UNILAD, “Although there could be a number of symptomatic reasons why someone would want to obsessively put up decorations early, most commonly for nostalgic reasons either to relive the magic or to compensate for past neglect.

 

In a world full of stress and anxiety people like to associate to things that make them happy and Christmas decorations evoke those strong feelings of childhood.

 

Decorations are simply an anchor or pathway to those old childhood magical emotions of excitement. So putting up those Christmas decorations early extend the excitement!”
