The position of the Christmas tree and the color and shapes you decorate it with can greatly affect certain aspects of your life without being aware of it at all. Feng Shui advises you that the size of the tree should be in accordance with the size of the room and that it shouldn’t be too large so as not to dominate the space. Everything in harmony with Chi, that is, the energy circulating the space – creates the best decorating scheme.

Just as a particular wall color or furniture color affects the atmosphere and the feeling of the space, so does the Christmas tree has the power to change your mood. The holiday season is the time when everything should be cheerful, comfortable, and full of closeness and warmth, and decorations can help you in creating the holiday mood.

Where to Place the Christmas Tree

The tree belongs to the element of wood, so it is best if you place it in the east, southeast, or south because these are the zones in which it feels best and is naturally positioned. The east zone is associated with health, growth, and activity; the southeast enhances abundance, and tenderness, giving the south glory, pride, honor, and recognition.
