Chinese lucky numbers
In Chinese culture basic number from zero to 10 are considered either positive or negative – this is because how the numbers are associated to Chinese words. The more lucky numbers are 0, 2, 3, 5, 6, 7, 8 and 9. All these numbers in Chinese language when pronounced are associated to positive meanings. For example number 3 sounds close to “birth” and number 2 is close to “bright” and “easy”. Number 2 is also considered exceptionally lucky. In Chinese belief all good things come in pairs.
On the other side the unlucky numbers in the Chinese numerology are 4, 5 and seven. Despite being internationally considered as a lucky number, number 7 is considered unlucky within Chinese culture due to the word being close to sounding like the ones meaning “deceive” and “to leave”.
