Did you know that Number 4 and Number 8 are special in China?

Number 4:  

  • Chinese people think number 4 is bad luck
  • In Chinese, the word for number 4 is “Si” (which is pronounced like the 6th letter in Amharic alphabet se, su, see, sa, say, si, so). 
  • This word sounds like the Chinese word for “death. “
  • So whenever you are interacting with Chinese people, do not give them things that have number 4. Do not put them on the 4th floor of a hotel room, for example.

Number 8:  

  • Chinese people think number 8 is good luck
  • There are many reasons why number 8 is lucky. For example, it is symmetrical, which the Chinese find attractive.
  • That is why the Beijing Olympics started on the date 08/08/08 (August 8th, 2008).
  • If you are doing business with Chinese people, try to include number 8 if you can.

  • ከቻይናውያን ጋር ሲሆኑ “4” ቁጥር ጎልቶ የሚታይበት ቦታ ላይ አያስቀምጧቸው። ለምሳሌ ሆቴል ሲያዝላቸው 4ኛ ፎቅ ላይ ባይሆኑ ይመረጣል።

8 ቁጥር
