Meaning of 5201314
The number 5201314, which has gone viral on the Internet, means “I love you for a lifetime.”
First, three 520 numbers represent a day, which is a unique and modern celebration of love that occurs on May 20th (5.20) each year, and many people started treating May 20 as Valentine’s Day on social media in China.
Chinese culture attaches strong value to numbers and their power; some numbers are lucky and popular, whilst others are extremely bad luck. The reason that 520 has gained significance within Hong Kong and China is due to the way 5-2-0 is pronounced, which is similar to “I love you just like ILY” or “143” in English. That is why celebrations such as 520 Day have gained importance.
In a similar fashion, the pronunciation of the number 1314 is close to that of “for a lifetime” in Mandarin, and in the Chinese translation, “I love you for a lifetime” is pronounced as “Wǒ ài nǐ yībèizi”.
