    Today, 08-08-08, the luckiest day of the year!

    You may not know it or feel it yet, but today your luck may change.

    In China the number 8 is very lucky (especially having the Olympics start on this day at exactly 8:08pm).The word for it -- 'ba' -- sounds so close to the word for wealth that many people believe eight is a number that is linked to prosperity.Nine thousand weddings reportingly will take place in Beijing today.

    The Chinese also believe six is lucky, while seven is bad -- and four is really really bad.

    To some August 8, 2008 is a lucky day, but i think if really want to be lucky this day you need to stop by on chat today.

    May the luck of the Chinese be with you!

    Mr. G you've surpassed me in the amount of posts! Since I don't have a library of sounds to send you as a prize, can I send a bucket of Beefalo wings?

    Right! 8/8/8 happened sooner there. Europeans put days before months too.

    What a day! Nothing like this has happened for 399 days (7/7/7). And we won't see anything like it again until 9/9/9 in 396 days.
