The number 3 is very important in world religions. In christianity its the trinity (father, son and holy ghost), the Hindu Trimurti / Tridevi, the Three Jewels of Buddhism and the Three Pure Ones of Taoism.

3 is also a good number in Chinese culture, because it sounds like their word for 'alive'. In English literature, there were 3 witches in Macbeth, and 3 blind mice in the nursery rhyme.
