Have you already put up your holiday decorations? Are your friends shaming you about it? Show them this article!

Decorations can bring up happy childhood memories, according to a study published in the Journal of Enviromental Psychology. Putting them up sooner rather than later can help jump-start and boost your mood.

Another perk of decorating early is the possibility of making new friends. The study showed that decorations serve as a cue that the residents who live at the home are friendly.

Happy decorating!
