Lucky Numbers

There are lucky numbers in China. Business people generally like 6 and 8. 8 represents fortune, because it sounds like “being rich” in Chinese, while 6 represents luck, because it sounds like “smoothness”. Government officials may like number 7 better, hoping it can boost their career, because it sounds “going up”. Married couples usually prefer 9, because it means “forever”.
