Redknapp banned Christmas parties at Tottenham after a raucous and unauthorised trip to Dublin three years ago was followed by a home defeat to Wolves.
His successor Andre Villas-Boas said this week that he is happy for his squad to have "two or three" festive get-togethers, but QPR's current plight means Redknapp has no plans to do the same at his new club.
With Rangers seven points from safety after a winless run of 15 matches, the 65-year-old thinks his players do not deserve a party. Indeed the only celebrating that QPR will undertake this year is if they manage to avoid a potentially crippling relegation to the npower Championship.
"I'm not mad about footballers having Christmas parties," Redknapp told a press conference. "I have been doing this job an awful long time and I find it's nothing but aggravation. Almost every club has had aggro' at some time.
"The lads go out, photographers are waiting to take pictures of them late at night and you don't need it really. With the position we're in we have nothing to celebrate. We need to concentrate on getting results and if we get out of trouble we will have a big party at the end of the year.
"They had the whole summer off to have all the parties they wanted and get two and a half months of holidays - they can go anywhere and do what they want. This is the busiest time of the year."
Redknapp warned there would be no quick fix to QPR's problems when he was appointed two weeks ago and that much has been clear from his first two games in charge. Rangers struggled to a draw in Redknapp's opener at Sunderland and the Londoners came from behind to take a point against Aston Villa at home last weekend.
Should they fail to beat fellow strugglers Wigan at the DW Stadium, QPR will become the only club in Barclays Premier League history not to win any of their first 16 matches. Redknapp has been pleased with the efforts of his players, but he admits QPR's current predicament troubles him 24/7.
"My only concern and focus is trying to get some results at QPR," Redknapp said. "That's where my mind is all day every day and all night. I've been focusing on trying to get us ready to get a win tomorrow. If we do that then our season could take off."
