THE ASIAN UNDERSTANDING AND BELIEF IN NUMBERS
Travel to any country in the world, and any region within that country, and you'll probably find superstitions about what is lucky and unlucky. Often descended from religious or spiritual backgrounds, some symbols and numbers just seem to possess a special significance whether you see them; in the street, in sport or in art. You might even have a lucky number yourself.
Special numbers that are recognised in the western world, such as 7, 13, 23 and 666, are used - or avoided - by many people in their everyday lives. Some are considered to be lucky, others considered very bad luck! If you are interested to know, the fear of the number 666 is called Hexakosioihexekontahexaphobia!
Asia has it’s belief in good and bad numbers, too, and many are used every day, The western world has the a fear of number 13, but Tetraphobia - a fear of the number four - is also quite common in Asia, in a direct contrast to the West’s appreciation of the four-leafed clover.
The numerology number that Presto Company Limited would like to share with you is 24.
24 is the number of family, harmony, idealism, and companionship. There's a desire for long-term security. The number 24 is a great diplomat. It tends to use sensitive cajoling to mitigate differences and restore and keep harmony in family and business.
