I know it's only November, but instead of going to the spa or taking a long hot bath, DECORATE FOR CHRISTMAS!


According to a psychoanalyst named Steve McKeown, people who decorate for Christmas early are HAPPIER than people who wait for a more reasonable time to put them up, like, you know, after Thanksgiving.


Why?  "In a world full of stress and anxiety, people like to associate [with] things that make them happy, and Christmas decorations evoke those strong feelings of childhood.


"[They're] simply an anchor or pathway to those old childhood magical emotions of excitement.  So putting up Christmas decorations early extends the excitement." 


So go ahead, make some warm milk and gingerbread cookies and tinsel out to your heart's desire!
