Chinese people consider the number of four (4) is a homophone to "death" in Chinese. Therefore, four (4) is believed to be unlucky.
On contrary, the number of eight (8) is a homophone to "prosperity" in Chinese. I suppose this is the reaasonable explanation that Chinese people regard it as the luckiest number.
