Though we just celebrated Halloween, this weekend is the perfect time for you to bust out the Christmas decorations.
There’s science behind this! It turns out, decorating for Christmas reminds us of happier times and immerses us in nostalgia. That in turn makes us happier. Even if we’ve lost family members, we get to remember them in happier times while trimming the tree and hanging garland.
Decorating may also gain you new friends. One study notes that decorating outdoors makes you appear more welcoming and social.
Before you get started, here are three important holiday decorating tips:
- Go more natural. You can minimize decorations by adding pine branches, pine cones and berries.
- Don’t skimp on an artificial tree. Pay for the good one. It is an investment…
- Use LED lights.
