Lucky 88by penchofifteenpolls | created - 5 months ago | updated - 5 months ago | Public
According to Chinese Culture, eight is the luckiest number of all because it sounds very similar to the word meaning “wealth”, “fortune”, and “prosper”.
It is customary in the country to incorporate the number 8 wherever it's possible, and with more eights your good fortune increases.
The number 88 means double happiness, and as such, watching a film that incorporates this number may make you happier.
The following films have a runtime of exactly 88 minutes, making them very likely to bring enjoyment according to this idea.
