OK. Wait you need to read this before you gift anyone a lucky bamboo. If you got 4 lucky bamboo sticks STOP!!!!!!! Nothing could be worse than gifting the wrong number of lucky bamboo sticks. Didn’t know? Ok here are some well kept secrets to luck.
- Two stalks represent love. (Easy to remember 2 for couple)
- Three is for Happiness, Wealth and Long Life (3 things we all wish for0
- Five for Wealth (spiritual, physical, emotional, intellectual) (Thought 3 already covered it in a single Wealth category… you get the point, this is more focused luck to wealth)
- Six is for good luck and wealth
- Seven for good health
- Eight is for growth (Physical, Spiritual, Mental)
- Nine is for extra luck ( everyone could do with a tad extra luck)
- Ten for perfection
- Twenty One for a great blessing
Ok… now even if you forget the numbers, remember never gift 4 stalks. Its supposed to symbolize death. So I guess just knowing that should avoid major bad luck.
