MindFixers’s Psychoanalyst and founder, Steve McKeown says, “Although there could be a number of symptomatic reasons why someone would want to obsessively put up decorations early, most commonly for nostalgic reasons either to relive the magic or to compensate for past neglect.”
This world is full of reasons for stress and anxiety and these decorations act as a guard against the sea you are drowning in. It brings you back the happy memories of your life from the days of no stress.
Psychologist and author of the book 13 Things Mentally Strong People Don’t Do says ‘The holiday season stirs up a sense of nostalgia.
‘Nostalgia helps link people to their personal past and it helps people understand their identity.
‘For many putting up Christmas decorations early is a way for them to reconnect with their childhoods. It may be a bittersweet feeling.
‘Perhaps the holidays serve as a reminder of when a loved one was still alive. Or maybe looking at a Christmas tree reminds someone of what life was like when they still believed in Santa.
So don’t keep it on hold and don’t keep waiting for the time to be late. Do it early and live some precious happy moments with your family. Make memories for your family and loved once, only happy memories.
