Eight is regarded as one of the happiest numbers in numerology and is frequently associated with prosperity and plenty. If you look closely, a "8" is actually a literal infinity sign flipped upright, indicating its limitless possibilities. Aug 08th is considered a lucky day by many because it was on this date that Galileo Galilei first observed four planets pass across the face of the sun.
Galileo's discoveries established beyond doubt that Earth was not the only planet that supported life and prompted scientists to ask themselves what role, if any, these other bodies might play in sending signals into space. Today, we know that besides our own Moon, Venus, Mercury and Mars contain conditions that could have enabled life at some point in the past.
So far, all the evidence we have indicates that Earth is unique among the known planets in that it is the only place where life as we know it exists. Scientists believe that anywhere else would be too cold or hot for anything to live long enough to develop into something visible to us. However, this doesn't stop them from trying to find an explanation for each new discovery about other worlds. For example, they think Saturn's moon Titan may be capable of supporting life under certain circumstances.
The number 8 has long been misinterpreted and connected with ill luck. However, in Chinese culture, the number eight is considered to be the most auspicious. For some, the number 8 represents a new beginning and a new order. For others, it is the end of an era and a time for change.
In religion, Jesus had to turn over tables in his home town before he began his ministry (Luke 7:39). This was because the Jews did not want any more kings after Solomon's reign, so Jesus was regarded as a king himself. In Matthew 21:9, Jesus says that the kingdom of heaven is like this. On one hand, it is a sign of victory, since it indicates that his authority extends beyond what anyone could have imagined. But on the other hand, it is also a signal for change - Jesus is going to establish his own kingdom instead.
In mythology, Hades, the god of the underworld, owned eight golden apples that granted him eternal life. When Zeus wanted to punish Hades for trying to overthrow him, he tricked him into giving up the apples first.

It would be great if there was an eighth day! Suturday is the name for it. This is what I'd name it because it's Saturday and Sunday. Isn't that a nice change from always naming the seventh day of the week "Sunday"?
There are many names for the eighth day of the week, including Sabbath, Lord's Day, Holy Day, and Day of Rest. It isn't called "Saturn's Day" or "Uranus' Day." The term "eighth day" comes from the Bible, where God said that he would not work on the Sabbath day (which we call Saturday) but rather he made all things new on the "eighth day." Thus, the idea of an "eighth day" came about to describe Sunday.
People have been observing Sundays as a day of rest for many centuries now. The early Christians adopted this practice and it has been done ever since by many different religions.
Today, most religious traditions observe Sunday as a day of rest from labor and worship. Some also include fasting in their observances.
