What Is Singles' Day And How To Celebrate It?
Have you ever heard of Singles' Day? Let us tell you more about it!
Singles Day is a holiday celebrated on November 11. Originally called "Bachelor's Day," the celebration began among students at China's Nanjing University around 1993 as a sort of anti-Valentine's Day. The happy couple has their special day to celebrate, here's one for happy singles!
But how did it all start? It all started when four single male students of Nanjing University's Mingcaowuzhu dorm discussed how they could break away from the monotony of having no significant other, and agreed that November 11 would be a day of events and celebrations in honor of being single.
Now Singles' Day serves as an occasion for single people to gather, throw parties, socialize and have fun, because ...why not?
Singles' Day has become more and more popular in other countries as well. It is now celebrated throughout Southeast Asia and in some European countries, including Germany, Belgium, and the United Kingdom.
Although unfortunately, it's not yet an officially recognized public holiday, Singles' Day has become the largest online shopping day in the world.
