Hi geoge4,
"Feng shui" is a kind of traditional Chinese metaphysics. It says the location of a house, tomb or position of things in the house supposed to have an influence on the fortune of a family.

床(chuáng)前(qián)不要(bùyào)放(fàng)镜子(jìngzi),风水(fēngshuǐ)不(bù)好(hǎo).
Don't put mirrors in front of your bed. That's not good in fengshui.
