Here's how you can celebrate the spirit of the Griswold family's Christmas vacation!
While the pandemic has dampened our plans to go on a holiday, it hasn't dampened our Christmas spirit just yet. If you're looking for fun ways to celebrate indoors, putting up decorations right at home is a great start. And don't worry if you've started celebrating a bit early. Like we've said before, some experts believe that those who decorate their homes for Christmas way earlier are happier and even friendlier people. Psychologist Deborah Serani confirmed to TODAY Home that decorating can definitely lift your mood. Scientifically speaking, she illuminates, "It does create that neurological shift that can produce happiness. I think anything that takes us out of our normal habituation, the normal day in, day out ... signals our senses, and then our senses measure if it's pleasing or not. Christmas decorating will spike dopamine, a feel-good hormone. For a lot of us, Christmas is a magical time, it’s a time of innocence, it’s a time of joy," Serani added.
So here's the perfect reason to start decorating! If you're a fan of the film National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation and want to decorate whilst celebrating the spirit of the Griswold family's Christmas vacation, check this out. There's an inflatable RV designed to the likes of the beaten-down RV that Cousin Eddie parks outside Griswold's house for Christmas. However, fret not. This one looks pretty new.
