Read on to find out the origins of this special day that's just for singles. You can save 10% across our site on the 11th, whether you're coupled up or not!
The Holiday That Celebrates Your Independence
Everything about adult life seems to revolve around whether or not you've found a partner. As we get older, the pressure to couple up gets more and more. How many times have you ended up in that Bridget Jones scenario where well-meaning friends and relatives quiz you on why you're still single? Whether you're happily unattached or looking for love, these kind of questions get old quickly!
This sort of pressure is even more common in China. The population imbalance between men and women means that there are due to be over 24 million more single men than women by 2020. Not great odds for Chinese bachelors! Singles Day was started by students in the 1990s. Sick of being made to feel sad for being single, they wanted to celebrate their independence. They picked the 11th of November as the date 11/11 contains only ones.
