Wow. Those are some pretty interesting opinions you've got there, Will.

Unsurprisingly, many of the show's viewers appeared less than impressed with Will's claims, and took to Twitter to vent their frustrations.

"William Hanson is The Grinch personified," said one.

While another blasted: "Common by the way you have your tree, REALLY?!"

"My tree goes up on the 1st... My house, my rules. I'd rather be "common" & decorate my house the way i want to for my family's Christmas. This guy can stick his etiquette," suggested a third critic.



William's appearance comes after it was revealed that people who put their Christmas decorations up early are more likely to be happy.

In a report by Science Direct, it was claimed: "[People see those with] Christmas decorations as a cue that the residents were friendly and cohesive.

"Decoration interacted with sociability in a complex but interpretable way. In the absence of Christmas decorations, raters accurately distinguished between the homes of sociable and nonsociable residents; in open ended comments, they attributed their impressions to the relatively more 'open' and 'lived in' look of the sociable residents' homes."

The report continued: "When Christmas decorations were present, raters actually attributed greater sociability to the nonsociable residents, citing a more open appearance as the basis for their judgments.

"The results support the idea that residents can use their home's exterior to communicate attachment and possibly to integrate themselves into a neighborhood's social activities."

Well, that clears that up, then.
