If you're the kind of person who gets into the Christmas spirit particularly early, don't listen to the haters. According to science, you're a happier person and people like you more.

In a report in Science Direct, they explain that those who put their decorations up early are generally happier people, and are seen as more welcoming and personable by others.

They say: "[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."

They 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."

So you seem friendlier and you are generally happier?

Sweet.

So there you have it, Christmas lovers are happier people so all you Scrooges should take a leaf out of their book...

Next year perhaps.
