Like it or not, the festival season is just around the corner. Some of you may have set up your Christmas decorations already, and you’ll be happy to know that a scientist found that early decorating can actually make you happier.

She went on to say that any shift in habituation singles the senses and something like Christmas decorating will spike dopamine release, a feel-good hormone.

Did you put up your Christmas decorations yet?
