why is putting up the Christmas tree fun as kids but less fun as adults?

    I'm an adult and I don't find putting up the Christmas tree any less fun.  I think that putting on the big colored traditional lights is the best part of decorating a tree.

    Because adults have experienced many times.

    We have an artificial tree.   The decorations are stored in the attic, so we lug them down  flights and it takes most of the afternoon to put up everything- including the lights-- there were times when we had to run out to the store for new lights because the sets we bought the year before wouldn't turn on. GRRRR.    Once everything is up and on, it's very nice- but it's a lot of work.   As kids, we helped our mom put up the tree and decorate it.   That was fun. It was a bit of chore to put everything away- usually on New Year's Day.

    Because the kids it’s magical, to adults it’s a burden.

    The kids get to do the fun part.  The adults have to untangle the lights and get the tree to stand up straight.  They also have to drag up the ornaments from the basement,  make the hot chocolate and clean up afterwards.

    Because as a kid life is fun as an adult life is a drag and you’re just waiting for old age retirement and death

    Because work makes it less fun. As a kid you weren't the one that had to spend the money and put up the tree
