Welp! This is all the news I needed to start putting up my decorations right now. I mean, all the stores are already putting them out for sale, so why not?

The British blog Hull Daily Mail spoke to two psychiatrists who say the urge for people to decorate for Christmas is tied to nostalgia and “childhood magical emotions of excitement”.

They say that putting up Christmas decorations “extends the excitement” and can help make us happier. So there you have it, the only excuse you needed to start putting up your decorations early!

And if anyone tells you otherwise, they must be miserable, right?
