Wedding Traditions and Superstitions
In Japanese and Chinese culture, the number "four" is synonymous with "death". Therefore, when giving gifts do not have the number of items or money figures symbolizing the number four. In Chinese, the numbers nine (eternity), eight (prosperity), two (harmony), six (prosperity) are lucky. The number five is a negation. For example, five-eight=to not prosper. five-two=not harmonious.
