07/07/2007 - Lucky?

Due to the "special date" today, I found this and thought it was some neat info:

Those superstitious types who freaked out last year when the calendar read 06/06/06 will have something to smile about today … the 7th day of the 7th month, 2007.

Believing the triple appearance of the number 7 will bring luck, many people are planning important events (such as weddings) for this first Saturday in July.

If they only knew what the Chinese were thinking.

The number seven is considered lucky due to its frequent and favorable appearance in the Bible, say historians.

Chinese culture, for example, associates "degrees" of luck according to how a number is pronounced. Eight, whose Chinese name rhymes with the words for prosperity and wealth, is considered particularly auspicious. The Beijing Olympics, as a result, will open next year at 8 p.m. on Aug. 8, 2008.

Oh, and many Chinese consider 7 a very unlucky number associated with death.

So, do you think the day was lucky or not?? I had a great day out visiting and enjoying the sun...not a bad day so far!

I also got the GREATEST song from someone on facebook, please take a listen. CLICK FOR SONG
