Do you believe in lucky numbers? The Beijing Olympics began on 8.08.08 because eight is a lucky number in China. About 85% of buildings in the U.S. don't have a 13th floor and condo units ending in 13 are often the last to sell or rent (same for the fourth floor in China and Korea). We have a friend who refused to interview at a law firm because its building number was 666. As it's moving season, we're wondering, do superstitious numbers impact your choice of address?
