You can establish rapport with children if you install the New Year's symbol to the right of the entrance.
To make life "sweet", it is recommended to hang various sweets on the tree - sweets, gingerbread, homemade cookies with nuts, icing, candies, tangerines. In the first minutes of the New Year, you just need to remove the treat from the branch and eat it, making the desired wish.
To lure happiness into the house, it is imperative to hang bright balls of different colors and sizes on the tree, preferably made of glass, not cheap plastic. They symbolize the unity of feminine and masculine energy, give family peace, joy, comfort and health.
In order for the house to be protected from troubles and misfortunes all year round, it is worth putting on a five-pointed star or a beautiful tip on the pointed top of the spruce.
