In The Spirit of Valentine!

Why does the wedding ring go on the fourth finger? According to a Chinese saying, because true love lives on eternally. To prove it, they ask you to follow these steps:

(follow the illustration above): Firstly, open your palm, bend the centre fingers and put them together back to back Secondly, the remaining 4 fingers join the tips together...

Follow the arrangement below:
1. Try to open your thumb, the thumb represent parents, it can open up, which states that our parents will leave us one day.

2. Now close up your thumbs, then open your second finger, the second fingers too open up, these fingers represent brothers and sisters, they too have their own family which is why they too will leave us one day.

3. Now close up your second fingers, open up your little finger, these represent your children. These fingers too open up. Sooner or later they too will leave us for they got their own lives to live.

4. Nevertheless, close up your little finger, try to open your fourth finger on which we put our wedding ring; you will be surprised to find that it cannot be opened at all. Because it represents husband and wife,(The Chinese believe that this whole life you will be attached to each other if it's real love).

Thumb represents parents
Second finger represents brothers and sisters.
Centre finger represents own self.
Fourth finger represents your partner.
Last finger represents your children.
