Celebrating lucky seven

Happy seventh birthday Pete

In the traditional Chinese culture, Seven represents the combination of Yin, Yang and Five Elements (Metal, Wood, Water, Fire and Earth). This combination is considered as “harmony” in the ideology of Confucianism. While in Chinese Taoism, it stands for Tao which has a close connection with kindness and beauty.

Lucky Number 7

Today, our Peter Peter Pan is celebrating his seventh birthday.

Over and over the number 7 is a good number, a lucky number. It repeats itself in nature, seven seas, seven continents, seven colors in a rainbow and seven days in a week. Gamblers love it when three 7’s appear on a slot machine, they don’t call it “Lucky 7” for nothing. Snow White’s best friends were the seven dwarfs.

Please join me in wishing Pete a very lucky seventh birthday and kicking cancer in the butt so that we can celebrate his eighth, his nineth and as bonus we’ll shoot for his tenth birthday.
