    The Chinese culture is an old one that is rich in history, tradition and as a result superstition. Several things are considered lucky and unlucky in Chinese culture and China. Among lucky items, the dragon and any symbolism associated with it is considered both lucky and auspicious. Also, several numbers are considered lucky with 8, 3 and 5 being considered so. The number 4 on the other hand is considered unlucky do to its Chinese pronunciation being similar to that for the word death.


    In terms of lucky symbols and words associated with them, they range from words like Fu, Lu and Xi to represent wealth, luck and prosperity/happiness to shou, ai and mei which represent health, love and beauty. More information can be found below.
