The number '8' is as lucky as you can get in numerology obsessed China. I've learned that China did not bid on the 2004 Olympics, or the 2012 Olympics -- just 2008 -- and that they launched the Olympic Games at 8:08 on 08-08-08.
Eight is a number that means money, power and fame. It is considered an equalizer because on its side it resembles the symbol for infinity. 888 in Greek = "Jesus".
Tremendous numbers of weddings, births, engagements and the like today. For me, it signals a new beginning. A lucky new beginning.
I'll tell 'ya later.
