Why Are Christmas Lights So Magical?

In 1882, Edward Johnson, an American inventor and business partner of Thomas Edison, first introduced holiday lights to the world. The science behind why these lights make us happy is fascinating.

Deborah Serani, a psychologist and award-winning author and senior professor at Adelphi University in New York, told the Today Show: “It does produce neurological shifts that produce a sense of well-being. "I think anything that takes us out of our normal routine, our normal routine day in and day out... sends a signal to our senses and our senses then gauge whether it's enjoyable or not." She added: "Christmas Decoration stimulates dopamine, the feel-good hormone."

Professor Serani explains that bright lights and colors trigger happy hormones. One possible explanation is chromotherapy (color therapy), which is thought to increase energy levels and feelings of well-being. And of course there’s nostalgia. "For so many of us, Christmas is a magical time, it's a time of innocence, it's a time of joy."


Camouflage lights are not only happy hormones, but also people’s love for life.

Cocooning is another possible reason lights are being sold out this winter. The term originated in the 1980s when people hid within four walls to escape the harsh realities of the Cold War. Now, with lockdowns and fears over the coronavirus disease, the cocooning trend is back. Home is the center of our lives. We're going to be spending a lot of time in it, so let's decorate it so we feel good about ourselves and our space!

There’s another benefit to installing lights that you may not be aware of.

According to a study published in the Journal of Environmental Psychology, holiday decorations make you appear friendlier and more likely to get along with your neighbors. Yes, there have been studies on this too. Not feeling the relaxed vibe this year? Didn't you put it up? Don't worry, your neighbors won't mind. David H. Rosmarin, an assistant professor at Harvard Medical School, explains that there is a silver lining to the holiday: “Overall holiday stress due to lower social expectations and greater acceptance of human limitations It’s going to be lower than a normal year.” And struggle. ” He elaborated: “As long as we acknowledge our struggles, no one will take it personally if our gifts or meals aren’t ‘perfect’ this year. This puts less pressure on our performance and appearance. "
