Placing your Christmas tree and decorations in December 2021
Last year, we had a lockdown over Christmas in the UK which meant that we could only celebrate Christmas with our own household and it was very strange not getting together with family to celebrate. I am very hopeful that Christmas in 2021 will be a bit more normal than last year and that we will get to celebrate with loved ones.
During the build-up to Christmas, I like to decorate the inside and outside of my home and will be putting my decorations up earlier than normal this year as I like to think it spreads cheer to people walking by.
I always get the feeling that Christmas and New Year is just around the corner as soon as we launch the Chinese New Year Annual updates and now that the annual updates are live on the site, it feels like I have another month to start preparing when in reality, Christmas day is just over five weeks away from writing this article.
I always find it amazing how shops tend to bring their Christmas range out as soon as Halloween is over in the UK. It seems that every year, I end up with more and more decorations around the house and every year, I promise myself I won’t go over the top next year and then the cycle continues when Christmas comes back around. Although I am a lot better prepared than in previous years, I do see the importance of preparing early for events and with Chinese New Year around the corner from Christmas on the 1st of February 2022 (lunar), I definitely want to get everything prepared early rather than leave it to the last minute.
This year, I’ve decided to get started on my Chinese New Year checklist early and will be going through my home and office and get a head start on cleaning before the 3rd February (solar) when I will be placing my 2022 Cures and Enhancers.

Christmas is my favourite time of year, especially now that my niece and nephew have a big appreciation for the decorations and lights but can these bright red, green, gold and many other colours have an effect from a Feng Shui point of view? The simple answer is yes, it can have a huge effect if the decorations are not placed in the right or wrong area!
Obviously, the placement for Christmas trees and candles this year is based on the Annual and Monthly Flying Stars which happen to match up with each other; we will have the same monthly stars in the same sector as the annual stars this year which can make placing Christmas decorations easier.
Sadly, we cannot give good and bad areas for everyone’s home personally as it would require a lot of work reading the charts and floor plans and would fall in line with a home consultation which can cost a lot of money. The cheaper and easier option if you want to know everything about your home or office with regards to Feng Shui is to take a look at the Academy of Feng Shui Software which can read all of your charts and give you advice for your home with the fixed, annual and monthly Flying Stars and keep you prepared for 2022, 2023 and much more ahead.
Please read below for a more detailed synopsis of the Feng Shui effects of tinsel, the Christmas tree, flashing lights and everything else that goes with the Christmas decorations…
But I only have the decorations up for a few weeks; surely the Feng Shui effect won’t be that serious?
We only have our Christmas decorations up around our home and office for a few weeks of the year but all of those different bright colours, shapes, flashing lights and associations to the Five Elements can either have a good or bad effect on your home or office but luckily, any problems caused by the Christmas decorations can be weakened or avoided by following the advice below for Christmas 2021.
How do Christmas trees affect the home or office?
Starting with the obvious fact that real Christmas trees have a wood element although it is not actually too strong as the wood is dying from being cut down so the wood element effects are minimal. Christmas trees, in general, can produce a lot of Yang energy with the flashing lights and generally bright colours. The shape of Christmas trees is also associated with the fire element which can either have a positive effect or negative effect due to the productive and weakening cycle and depending on where it is placed. These days, Christmas trees come in all sizes and materials; you can get real trees, plastic ones with metal frames and even fabric ones which is why we have made it really simple to know the best and worst places to put your Christmas tree in December 2021.
The best place that you could place a Christmas tree in 2021 with regards to the annual and monthly flying stars in December 2021 would be in the southwest and west although please read below as some areas may require care. You can also place Christmas decorations in the west and south this month although please try to avoid real candles here as this will be too much fire energy.
The compass sectors that you should and shouldn’t place Christmas decorations also applies to the outside of your home and as a rule of thumb, the further away from your home the decorations are going, the less of an impact they will have on the Flying stars. If you had a large red Santa Claus statue about 10 metres away from the home at the front of your garden, this would have a lot less effect than if it were by the front door.
The areas to avoid placing your Christmas tree in December 2021 with regards to the annual and monthly flying stars would be in the northeast, east, northwest and centre of a room or building.
Please remember that there is always a solution if you cannot avoid placing Christmas decorations in a certain area of your home.
Why should you avoid placing Christmas trees in these areas?
A Christmas tree has strong energy regardless if it is real or artificial, the shape of the tree is associated to the fire element as it is triangle-shaped; its colour is associated to the wood element as it is traditionally green although some people do use silver, gold and even pink trees nowadays. Any flashing lights are classed as yang qi and all these elements of the five phases will have a negative effect on the northeast, east, northwest and centre and can cause problems during December 2021.
Think about the times you have heard of family arguments around Christmas time, this may seem like just a part of the stress during the build-up to Christmas and such a small effect but sometimes the smallest things can be the catalyst to major disasters so please take this information seriously.
Do candles have an effect on my home?
The big candles in the centre of the table on Christmas day and the arrangement of flickering flames on the fireplace are one of the traditional traits of Christmas but you should take care when placing candles over Christmas as the effects can be quite powerful causing loss of wealth, accidents, relationship problems and much more. Here are the areas to enhance, weaken and avoid by placing candles over the Christmas period in December 2021.
North – This is a bad area for Christmas trees and candles in December 2021 although if you do place a tree here, please avoid too much red and orange and introduce metal colours on the tree to weaken the annual #2 star
Northeast – This is a good area for Christmas decorations in December 2021 although please try to avoid burning candles here
East- This is a bad area for Christmas trees and candles in December 2021 although if you do place a tree here, please avoid too much red and orange and introduce metal colours on the tree to weaken the monthly #2 star
Southeast – This is a bad area for Christmas trees and candles in December 2021 although if you do place a tree here, please avoid too much red and orange and introduce metal colours on the tree to weaken the annual #5 star
South – This is a good area for Christmas decorations in December 2021 although please try to avoid burning candles here
Southwest –This is a good area for Christmas trees and candles in December 2021
West – This is a good area for candles and Christmas decorations in December 2021
Northwest – This is a bad area for Christmas trees and candles in December 2021 although if you do place a tree here, please avoid too much red and orange and introduce metal colours on the tree to weaken the annual #5 star
Centre –This is a bad area for Christmas trees and candles in December 2021 although if you do place a tree here, please avoid too much red and orange and introduce shades of green colours on the tree
If you have no choice but to place your Christmas tree and decorations in the bad areas listed above, just try to avoid too many fire colours such as shades of reds and oranges.
Will my head fall off if I put red tinsel up in the east or south in December 2021?
Putting Christmas decorations up in a certain area of your home that is not suited will not have a major effect on the Feng Shui of your home although it is still a good idea to avoid placing decorations like Christmas trees with flashing lights or any other Christmas activity that creates movement, noise or vibration in the areas that I have above. If you wish to get more involved in researching the flying stars in your home, I would strongly recommend using the floor planner section of our Academy of Feng Shui software to find your personal best directions for your property. I would love to be able to do a feature on the fixed stars but these are unique to every single property as you need to input your compass directions and the year that the property was built.
What colours can I use in each area?
The main Colours used in Christmas decorations are silver, gold, red, orange, green, and white. Below, you will find a list of what colours you can use in each area of your home or office with regards to the annual and monthly Feng Shui flying stars.
North – white, silver, gold, copper, bronze
Northeast – red, orange, burgundy, purple, pink, lilac
East- white, silver, gold, copper, bronze
Southeast –white, silver, gold, copper, bronze
South – red, orange, burgundy, purple, pink, lilac, brown, terracotta, beige, yellow
Southwest –white, silver, gold, copper, bronze
West – red, orange, burgundy, purple, pink, lilac, brown, terracotta, beige, yellow
Northwest – white, silver, gold, copper, bronze
Centre – different shades of green
