Dad has amazing foul-mouthed rant at family putting Christmas decorations up in November
| Last updated
A foul-mouthed father has gone viral for his brilliant reaction to his missus putting the Christmas decorations up in November.
Although viewers were divided by the father's rant, they were all loving his Scrooge-esque reaction.
"It's f***ing November, for f***s sake!" the dad shouts, whilst dressed in a high-vis jacket.
Whilst insisting he's 'not being a bitter mug', his daughter is simultaneously recording the whole thing.
Carla's dad rants: "It's November. It's not the middle of November, not the end of November, it's near the start. Firework night was only the other night," adding it's not even 'December first' and 'Halloween was just the other night'.
The woman off camera, presumably his wife, responds 'it's tradition' before he comes back with 'it's not the tradition, it's not my tradition'.
After watching the hilarious clip, some viewers thought the dad was being a tad over-the-top.
"What’s the big deal?? Life’s too short. Do what makes you happy xx," one person wrote.
A second viewer agreed: "Mines been up since 2 November, good on ya you get your tree up."
"Clearly he likes bumping his gums the same as my husband! But do we listen? Mine has been up since the 3rd xx," another quipped.
Others couldn't disagree more, as one person commented: "I'm with him, don't dilute it by stretching it out."
A second added: "12 days before Christmas and they come down 12 days after Christmas."
Someone else also said: "He's absolutely right but funny same time."
So - incase you were wondering - it actually turns out that putting your Xmas decs up early can actually make you happier.
The research - which is from a while back, but remains relevant - comes from Steve McKeown, a psychoanalyst from The McKeown Clinic.
He says that the golden time to start getting excited for Christmas could be just at the start of November after Halloween for those who crave a bit of nostalgia to keep them warm as the world - or at least the northern hemisphere of it - starts to really cool down.
He told UNILAD: "In a world full of stress and anxiety people like to associate to things that make them happy and Christmas decorations evoke those strong feelings of childhood.
"Decorations are simply an anchor or pathway to those old childhood magical emotions of excitement.
"So putting up those Christmas decorations early extend the excitement."
Furthermore, Amy Morin - a psychotherapist and the author of 13 Things Mentally Strong People Don't Do - backs up that theory, adding: "The holidays serve as a reminder of when a loved one was still alive.
"Or maybe looking at a Christmas tree reminds someone of what life was like when they still believed in Santa.
"For people who have lost a loved one, it may serve as a reminder of happy times they had with that person.
"Decorating early may help them feel more connected with that individual."
