The concept of lucky numbers is something that knows no borders. However, the particulars of those lucky numbers, are typically very geographically segregated as they are built around some very well established cultural concepts and taboos. The nature of lucky number itself is very subjective, and some countries are more apt to hold numbers closer to their collective hearts than others. Consequently, it’s important to remember that the origins of lucky numbers are much more regional than you would expect. Countries like China have had a long history of working with numbers and record keeping, and much of that tradition has persisted up until today. In Europe, the Roman Empire had a similar reputation for control through the use of numbers and records and the end result is a lasting effect on the countries that were once within the Empire’s sphere of influence.
