One of the most wonderful things about Christmas is the decorations and most particularly the spectacular centerpiece – the Christmas Tree. Follow these guidelines and enjoy a beautifully transformed magical home over the whole Christmas with some Feng Shui suggestions.
- Use plenty of green. Christmas can be stressful because there is so much red fire energy. Pine green is a cooling colour, so plants and evergreens will cool the atmosphere and bring peace and good feelings. Green also absorbs the fire energy that is created by fairy lights as well as the warmth generated by lots of people together. Its soothing colour will tone and balance the colour red.
- Angels and cherubs are lucky symbols – they fill the room with good will, peace and a fairytale atmosphere.
- Make sure everyone (including house guests) places something on the Christmas tree so that they put their own special feelings into it to make the gathering more special.
- Heed the Chinese phrase ‘ five colors blind’ – which means too much color, sound and activity can have a numbing effect upon on. Too much food and color will exhaust the family, so don’t put up decorations too early.
