The Singles’ Day is celebrated on four specific days in a year. It is part of Chinese modern culture
Forget about the Valentine’s Day, let’s just have a Singles’ Day party and get drunk. Yes, this is what many young bachelors’ thought in modern China.
Every year, especially on 11 November, a large number of single Chinese celebrate this festival, showing positive attitudes toward the fact that they have not found love.
The idea originally comes from the young. The number “1” resembles a bare stick, which, in Chinese culture represents bachelors. When it is 1 and 11 January (1/1, 11/1) and 1 and 11 November (1/11,11/11) sticks are gathering on the same day. It is a perfect time for sticks to express their feelings of being single together.
