If one hits another person with a broom, the hitter will get bad luck and he will ruin his life.
One should keep a well-shaven face. If one wears a mustache it should be well-trimmed. If one violates this norm it will give bad luck.
If a dog howls for a few hours in late night, it means someone died somewhere.
If one has a dream of teeth or snow, it indicates that his parents are dead.
If a baby cries for no reason,there are ghosts around and the child is disturbed by the ghosts.
Superstitions (cont.)
Building a house facing North would bring in ruin to the family.
If one marries a person who is either three or six years older or younger it is bad and it will bring bad luck to the couples.
Clipping toe-nails or finger-nails at night would bring ghosts to that place.
If one points at the moon with one’s finger it will make one’s ear tips fall off.

If one encases and keeps a turtle as a pet, it will ruin his business and fortune for it will slow a person's business down.
The Chinese believe that the number 8 is a lucky number because the pronunciation of the number 'eight' and the pronunciation of the word for ‘prosperity’ in Chinese are similar. Hence, the number 8 has much value in the social life in China. So if a house number or the registration number of a car has the 8 as a number, people think it is a lucky sign. Often people pay big sum to win a number with 8 for their car.
The number 4 is considered as unlucky. Hence this number is unacceptable for vehicles and houses. It is so because the number 4 in Chinese has the pronunciation similar to the word for the word 'death'.
The Chinese believe that the numbers 8, 18, 13 and 168 are lucky. Hence those who are on a gambling or business trip prefer these rooms. As these numbers are in great demand, often disputes and fights arise over the choice over these numbers.
The Chinese do not sweep during the New Years because if one does so he will sweep away all the good fortune. Hence the sweeping on the New Year is to be done the day previous.
Eating noodles will not be easy in China. This is because the popular belief is that an uncut noodle in soup will increase longevity. If the noodle is cut it will cut the longevity. Some times people may choke if the noodle is too long.

Sun Tzu has had a significant impact on Chinese and Asian history and culture, both as the author of The Art of War, an extremely influential ancient Chinese book on military strategy, and as a legendary historical figure.

Chinese architecture refers to a style of architecture that has taken shape in East Asia over many centuries. The structural principles of Chinese architecture have remained largely unchanged, the main changes being only the decorative details.
