What's up with 060606?

What is the big fuss about 06/06/06? I heard it is the Devil day; that's why "The Omen" is showing today. But why does the Chinese see it as a auspicious day instead, wanting to get married today...

Humans are such weird creatures that I cant understand more and more...

  • er...i think couples like to marry on dates that are easy to rem? haha...so 07/07/07, 08/08/08 would be popular as well...not really a chinese thing imho...

  • It's actually because 6 in hokkien sounds like luck. Talk about modern adaptations to old customs. Because something in Hokkien sounds like something else in English...

    Which is why 4/4/04 probably wasn't a hot day to marry. but 8/8/08, 9/9/09 would probably be big days. Personally I think getting married on Christmas day or New Year's Day would be good. You get reminded of it in November by stores. =P
