The 2008 Summer Olympics opening ceremony was held at the Beijing National Stadium, also known as the Bird's Nest. It began at 8:00 pm China Standard Time (UTC+8) on August 8, 2008, as 8 is considered to be a lucky number. The number 8 is associated with prosperity and confidence in Chinese culture. However, some sources reported the start time for the ceremony to be 8:08:08 pm instead of 8:00 pm. Organizers claim that the stadium was full to its 91,000 capacity.
