Luckiest marriage dates in 2024, according to Chinese calendar
2024 will be celebrated as the ‘Year of the Wood Dragon’. The positive qualities of wood (like growth and flexibility), combined with the inspiring traits of the mythical animal ensure that 2024 will be filled with opportunities for personal growth, happiness and fortune. Year of the Wood Dragon is particularly great for forging strong bonds and lasting love.
There are a couple of reasons why 2024 is the luckiest year to get married, as per Chinese zodiac. Firstly 2024 (2+0+2+4) adds up to 8 – a number which symbolises infinite love between husband and wife. Secondly, 2024 is a leap year, which is considered prosperous for couples tying the knot. Lastly, it’s a bliss to tie the knot in 2024 as it falls on a Saturday. Saturdays are considered to be the most popular day of the week to get married as they’re blessed by Saturn – the planet of commitment and marriage.
Luckiest days and months for marriage in 2024
According to the Chinese zodiac, August 8 is the luckiest day to get married, not just in 2024, but every year. Asian folklore states that the number 8 represents infinity and when applied to marriages, it stands for never-ending love between partners. Since August is the eighth month of the year, 8 takes a double meaning and its effect heightens. However, if August 8 doesn’t fructify because of some issue, don’t worry. You can still go ahead with the eighth day of any month.
Apart from August 8, there are a host of prosperous marriage dates in the Year of the Dragon 2024. When it comes to months, May, July, August, October, and November will be your best bet. Meanwhile, 2,8, 13, 14, 17, 20, 25, and 29 are the luckiest days.
So, you can plan your wedding date as a combination of these days and months, for example –May 2, August 13, November 20 and so on.
Please note: Number 4 should be avoided at all costs when it comes to marriage. Whether it’s the fourth day of any month or the fourth month (April) – 4 brings bad luck to marriages and is closely associated with death.
