What will happen on 8/8/08

8/8/08 is when it all happens. It is considered by many as the luckiest day of the year. That is why a lot of events are happening on this day.

The reason behind this is because the number 8 is considered to be a “lucky” number by the Chinese. It has been said that the Chinese are so fascinated with this number that you have to pay extra if you want it in your telephone number or your license plate.

There are a couple of reasons why the Chinese consider 8 as a lucky number. Consider the following reasons:

1.) Some people say the number 8 (ba) in China sounds like the word for “Prosperity” (fa)

2.) Other people say that it is considered lucky because when you write the number 8 most people tend to end writing it with their pen going for the an upper stroke unlike other numbers wherein you write it with a downward stroke.

3.) The number 8 has a perfect symmetrical shape. Perfect symmetry equals perfect balance which is very much valued in Chinese culture.

No offense to the Chinese but I am not a superstitious person. I do not believe in luck. I believe that God controls everything and that the future is in His hands. I do not see anything special with the number 8 nor do I see anything special with the day 8/8/08.

However, I cannot help but notice how the world has gone crazy over the number 8 and since this Friday is August 8, 2008. Most people have schedule important events in their lives on 8/8/08 since they consider this a very lucky day.

    We went through this back in 1977 also. I was dating a gal who really wanted to get married on July 7, 1977, so it would be lucky .. 7/7/77. I guess it was lucky for me. We didn’t get married.
