I am always fascinated by culture and superstition. In particular I find the number 4 interesting. The Number 4 is considered an unlucky number in many Asian cultures. Many numbered product lines skip the “4”, so if you have something you are marketing, please remember to keep that in mind. In recognizing Friday the 13th, here is an interesting post on Chinese superstitions. There are still some that adhere many superstitions traditionally. Here are the most popular superstitions and believes.
