Did you know that every country has superstitious shapes and objects? For instance, in the United States, a horseshoe is considered good luck, especially if it's pointing towards you when you find it. Some people even place horseshoes over the entrance to their home with the open end facing up to fill the house and everyone in it with good luck.
In Vietnam, there are several superstitions associated with specific shapes and objects.
According to Vietnamese history, four animals symbolize strength, knowledge, longevity, and nobility. Those are the dragon, unicorn, turtle, and phoenix.
Nowadays, the phoenix is revered and considered to bring good luck wherever it lands. The phoenix and dragon are so crucial to Vietnamese culture that people frequently exchange or gift dragon and phoenix paintings or sculptures to wish each other good luck and wealth.
In Vietnam, the turtle is often considered the symbol of strength and longevity. If you've ever visited Hanoi, the capital of Vietnam, then check out the turtle statues in the Temple of Literature.
Again, the combination of the dragon and phoenix symbolizes happiness, luck, and status.
In Vietnam, red symbolizes luck, fortune, and happiness.
