Christmas Tree Farm ~ Taylor Swift
‘In my heart is a Christmas tree farmWhere the people would come To dance under sparkling lights Bundled up in their mittens and coats And the cider would flow And I just wanna be there tonight’
It’s true, when we see Christmas lights we become happier. Not only are the lights beautiful, they trigger dopamine a brain chemical that makes us happy and nostalgic. From babies to the elderly, we’re all drawn to the beauty of the lights and with that comes happiness.
