Is 7 lucky or unlucky?
Is 7 the unlucky number?
The number 7 (七, pinyin: qī) in Mandarin sounds like "even" in Mandarin (齊, pinyin: qí), so it is a good number for relationships. It also sounds like "arise" (起, pinyin: qǐ) and "life essence" (氣, pinyin: qì) in Mandarin. Seven can also be considered an unlucky number since the 7th month (July) is a "ghost month".
Why 7 is a unique number?
Seven is the only number below ten that you cannot be multiplied or divided and still be a whole number under 10: The numbers 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5 can be doubled and always between 1 – 10. 6, 8 and 10 can all be halved. 9 divides by 3.
Why is the number 7 related to God?
It has had significance in almost every major religion. In the Old Testament the world was created in six days and God rested on the seventh, creating the basis of the seven-day-week we use to this day. In the New Testament the number seven symbolizes the unity of the four corners of the Earth with the Holy Trinity.
