Why the Amount $8888?

Why $8888?

This amount is the minimum I need to produce Double Happiness. Fortuitously, 8888, or 88-88, also happens to be a number the Chinese consider extraordinarily lucky. In fact the pairs of eights are considered to resemble and evoke the principle of shuang xi – “double happiness” – one meaning of which is the happiness that comes from the union of two things. So for Double Happiness, $8888 is both essential and lucky.
