Why is 7 lucky?

The main reason why the number 7 is considered lucky stems from Christianity where it is a revered number due to the fact that it is mentioned more times in the bible than any other number. This was further brought into light in the 6th century by Pope Gregory the Great who defined a set of seven negative attributes that must be avoided by adopting seven positive attributes.
