The number differences between the east and west

On talking about cultural differences between the east and the west, many factors can be reached. Among the differences , the number meaning is one of the heated topics. For the numbers, different peoples have different preference to them. Surely, about the number designs are plentiful. The numbers on the clothes, the numbers of jewelry accessories or collections, the numbers on the crafts.

The western countries, most people enjoy the number seven. For the reasons, they are affluent. Especially the Islamist, they more like seven because seven is a revered and complete number. Allah created the world in 6 days and got rest on the seventh day. They like to connect good things with seven. A banquet will be given after the birth of baby. The Muslim will prayer for seven times. All those activities are taken with the connection with seven.

The number 13 is considered to be the taboo number, which will bring the unfortunate and sufferings.

For the common reason is that 13 brought misery and death to Jesus. Before the victims, Judas takes a seat on the thirteen, who is reviled in history as the disciple who betrayed jesus to his death. And the day of Jesuss death is on the thirteen. Da Vinci's famous painting "The Last Supper" makes this tradition spread wider.

However, in China, people are inclined to number 8. For eight, its pronunciation sounds like getting rich. So many people want the number 8 when picking up telephone numbers or plate numbers, or choosing the floor numbers when buying house. Even when checking the bill, they even want to spend to get the mantissa of eight. Some other will get the number 8 pendants necklace. In design, the mathematical symbol, infinity is widely used to get the shape of eight which is changed from the infinity with a 90 degrees to the right or left. Such infinity pendant necklace or infinity bracelet bangle are a hot sale in market. 

On the other hand, the number 4 is the least favorite to people for its pronunciation similar to death.

Different cultures get different preference. Whatever, choose what you like. Just like the slogan form an ad, that, I choose it, I like it.
