Halloween is just 3 months away, and as expected, stores are beginning to stock up on spooky decorations while people are starting to decorate their homes in preparations for the best day of the year.
Whilst there are people who are completely passionate about the holiday, others start decorating their house extremely close to October 31, while the rest don’t take part in Halloween altogether.
For those of you who assume decorating your home early is strange, do not worry, there’s no right time to actually begin your Halloween decor, in fact, it could make you happier the earlier you do it.
It’s a well-known fact that thinking about something that makes you happy or reminiscing on some of your best memories helps you feel better and cheers you up.
This applies to Halloween decorations too, but don’t take our word for it, you can listen to the experts.
A psychoanalyst known as Steve McKeown – founder of MindFixers and owner of The McKeown Clinic – has shared his thoughts on those who tend to get excited when approaching their favorite holiday, whether that’s Halloween or Christmas. Find the full interview, HERE!
“In a world full of stress and anxiety, people like to associate to things that make them happy…”
“Decorations are simply a pathway to those childhood magical emotions of excitement.”
So, in short, McKeown is stating that we tend to hold on to magical moments from our childhood and attempt to get that same feeling (or something similar) every time our favorite holiday comes around.
Whether this is the case or not, there’s no denying that decorating your home in creepy designs in anticipation for Halloween – regardless of whether you’re doing it from childhood memories – is one of the few things you can do every year that doesn’t get boring.
