"In feng shui there are actually a lot of traditions associated with the new year, setting intentions, welcoming wealth and abundance," says Kristina Hollinger. "It's mostly an auspicious time to clean and declutter, that's a form of space clearing. But the big key here is not to do it on New Year's Day because it's believed to be that's when all the good luck is going to come to your doorstep."
