I have an aunt and uncle that bought a house because it had a good number.
It was the number "8". "8" means fortune in chinese, so whoever lives at "888" has fortune x 3!
"42" is not a good number, from what I understand, it can be interpreted as "easy to die". The number "4" is death, and "2" is easy.
"17" doesn't mean anything (I don't think it does anyways!). I just love how perfectly it is carved out of the fence. I think it would be really elegant if it was backlit at night. Jin loves house numbers that light up. It is easy to find.
I don't really believe that house numbers determines your fate, but part of me wishes I had an eight.
do certain numbers mean anything in your culture?
