Why is this the case? There are several reasons, but one of the main reasons is that we spend more time interacting with our friends and family on these holidays and, as it turns out, doing so is a robustly positive predictor of our happiness.Holidays can be hard on people who are depressed, lonely, anxious, or from screwed up families, but on the whole they are an important break from routine.
Note that people doing last-minute shopping are often quite unhappy. So plan ahead.
