Because 4 is a sacred number - contributions like this help (and cost you less than some cups of coffee)

"Sacred number “four” is considered to be a perfect number with a deep and worldwide symbolic meaning that goes back to the dawn of humanity.
...It is also sacred to many Native Americans who have four sacred mountains, four directions, four colors, four worlds, four sacred plants, & four times of day, four seasons. All events & actions are related to this number, because everything was created in fours. They define space & time by the four cardinal light phenomena: Dawn (white, east); Midday (blue, south); Evening Twilight (yellow, west), & Night (black, north). (colors associated with Lakota medicine wheel) Native American Culture is not a monolithic culture.....
However, generally, “four” symbolizes 4 cardinal points (North, South, East, and West), 4 lunar phases, 4 seasons, 4 winds & 4 elements: earth – air – fire – water, in the Western tradition & in Buddhism."
