Its getting to that point when I am starting to see Christmas decorations all around and the adverts are on tv every five seconds which always reminds me that its time to write about where to place Christmas decorations for December 2016. I tend to say this to myself every year but I really cannot believe how fast Christmas is coming around. 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 this year as we released the 2017 updates earlier than usual, it feels like I have another month to start preparing when in reality, Christmas day is only three weeks away from writing this article.

Feng Shui Festive Decorations 2016I 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 wont go over the top next year and then the cycle continues the next year. Last year, I got all of my Christmas decorations organised in boxes to make sure my lights (hopefully) wont be tangled up and my baubles wont be cracked or dented. Although I am a lot better prepared than previous years, I do see the importance in preparing early for events and with Chinese New Year around the corner from Christmas on the 28th January 2017, I definitely want to get everything prepared early rather than leave it to the last minute.

Christmas is my favourite time of year, especially with all of the decorations all over people’s homes 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 as 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 2017, 2018 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…

Christmas tree with presents and fireplace with stockingsBut 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 2016.

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 limited. Christmas trees in general can produce a lot of Yang energy with the flashing lights and general bright colours. The shape of Christmas trees are 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 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 2016.

The best place to place that you could place a Christmas tree in 2016 with regards to the annual and monthly flying stars in December 2016 would be in the southeast, southwest, west and east although please read below as some areas may require care. The optimum direction would be in the southeast of a room or building.

The areas to avoid placing your Christmas tree in December 2016 with regards to the annual and monthly flying stars would be in the north, centre and northeast of a room or building.

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 north, centre and northeast and can cause many problems during December 2016.

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 fire place 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.

North – This is not a good area to place candles or Christmas trees this month

Northeast – This is not a good area to place candles or Christmas trees this month

East- This area is a good place for Christmas trees in December 2016

Southeast – This area is a good place for Christmas trees in December 2016

South – This is a neutral area for Christmas trees in December 2016

Southwest – This area is a good place for Christmas trees in December 2016

West – This area is a good place for Christmas trees in December 2016

Northwest – This is a neutral area for Christmas trees in December 2016

Centre – This is not a good area to place candles or Christmas trees this month

Will my head fall off if I put red tinsel up in the west, southwest, east or centre in December 2016?

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.

Best areas for Christmas decorations in December 2016

Make the most of December 2016

In December 2016, the southeast, southwest, west and east are very auspicious and it is advised to place a lottery ticket in the southeast, southwest, west and east as you will greatly increase your chances of winning. The lottery ticket below was created with our Feng Shui software with an individual’s own unique Min Gua lottery numbers taken from your birth date and just by placing it in the north, northeast and northwest can increase the chances of a win tremendously.

This is a print screen of one of the many sections included in our software; you can view more of what is in included in the software by clicking on this link.

Please remember, regardless if you are in the northern or southern hemisphere, this applies to trees, tinsel, candles, bright nativity displays; anything that will activate the Qi in your opinion. The perfect solution to everything that I have written about above would be to make sure that you have prepared yourself for 2017, year of the Yin Fire Rooster. We have written a series of pages filled with valuable advice all about how to prepare yourself for Chinese New Year and all the 2017 Feng Shui Cures that you can place in order to make 2017 a much better year for you.

  1. Hi Micheal, thanks for the Christmas decor advice! I usually place the tree in northwest -this year thanks to you, have it in the north. only problem is I think the north area for my house has 5 and 9 natal
    stars! just a rough calculation I did going by house built around 1936, facing sw 232. We had all windows and part of roof replaced in 94 so not sure this would affect or change the natal stars.

    1. Hi Penny,

      To change the period of your home, you need to replace the whole roof so I would say from what you have told me, the home is still the original build date.

      Good colours to use with a 5 and 9 natal are silvers, gold and other metal colours and you should avoid fire colours such as red.

      If you have your tree in the north, I would place a lot of gold and silver metal colours on the tree as this will disipate the fire element here.

      Have a great Christmas and New Year, Penny.

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

  2. I have a question.

    Is this for december 2015/jan2016 or for 2014/2015. I see there are some comments from 2014.

    Thank you for this beautiful site. My family and I enjoy reading it.

    Merry Christmas and happy New year!

    1. Hi Sonya,

      The information on the page is all relevant to December 2015. I update the page every year with the relevant information which is why there will be old comments.

      Happy Christmas and New Year to you and your family also!

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

  3. Thank You, for the wonderful Feng Shui Christmas article! It is fantastic and helps so much for the Feng Shui enthusiasts! May you have a beautiful and abundant Christmas!
    With Light and Gratitude

  4. Thank you so much for all your advice. We really appreciate it. It is a difficult time for us right now as our dog is very sick, heart problems and cancer of the liver. It\’s not good news just before Christmas. However, interestly enough his bed is in the East with a red cushion. On your advice we have made changes. Although it\’s just a matter of days before we have to make that horrible decision we are trying to make him more comfortable.

    Keep up the good work and may we wish you and your family a very Merry Christmas and a Happy Healthy New Year.

    Next Year is the Year of the Goat which is my year so hopefully things will start to turn around. Kind Regards.

    1. Hi Patricia,

      I\’m so sorry to hear about your dog; being a huge dog lover, I cant even bare to think about what it must be like for you.

      I hope everything goes well with you and your dog and wish you a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year and all the best for your Dog, Patricia.

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

  5. Hi Daniel, thanks as always for all the useful advice. Just read article about best area to place trees, decorations etc, unfortunately the southeast is the only area I can put my Xmas tree, is there anything I can do to lessen any possible negative effects?
    Many thanks and best wishes to you all
    Karen

    1. Hi Karen,

      The Christmas tree will be good for the annual 3 star and the inherent element is of the southeast is wood so I would introduce some blue decorations and if you are using a real Christmas tree, I would submerge the tree in to a bowl of water which is apparently very good for a tree anyway and by introducing the water to the southeast, you will be creating a Sheng cycle where metal feeds water, water feeds wood.

      If you do not want to use water in this area, you can introduce blue decorations on the tree.

      I Hope you have a fantastic Christmas and New Year Karen.

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

  6. The areas to avoid placing your Christmas tree in December 2014 with regards to the annual and monthly flying stars would be in the east, south, southeast and centre of a room or building. Best areas in order: – north
    Neutral areas: – southwest, south, northeast SOUTH?
    Areas to avoid – south, east, southeast, centre Why should you avoid SOUTH?
