There are just four weeks until Christmas arrives once more. Yes, you’ve heard correctly, only a month away! Figuring out the appropriate time to start decorating the home is often a subject hotly contested amongst friends and family. Some say putting up the tinsel, tree and baubles in November is way too early, whilst others can’t wait to start decorating the minute Halloween and bonfire night have been and gone. Though according to a recent study, people who put up Christmas decorations earlier are happier than those who don’t. Then some leave it until the week before Christmas!
