Numbers are big when it comes to Chinese superstition.
Take the number 8 for instance. According to the Chinese 8-8-8, as in August 8, 2008 saw a big upsurge in the number of weddings taking place in China. Why?
Because 8-8-8 translates to "making fortune".
Or take 9-9-9, as in September 9, 2009 which translates to "everlasting. A perfect date for hopeless romantics seeking ultimate happiness.
Missed your chance?
Not to worry - you still have time according to the Chinese superstition calendar because the next big lucky number day is....
10-10-10 as in October 10, 2010.
The number 10 translates to "perfection in everything", so if this is what is missing from your life, start planning. You have less than 30 days left to make your pathetic life perfect.
And if you want to make your life doubly perfect why not book your special event; date; wedding or whatever between 10 a.m and 10.10 a.m on October 10, 2010. Now if that don't beat all!
We'll check back with you next year to see how things went ;) ;)
