What is Singles Day?
Is there a national Singles Day? Yes! Every year on the 11th of November, millions of people around the world take part and celebrate Singles Day. If you are unfamiliar, Singles Day started back in 1993 at China’s Nanjing University as an anti-valentines Day celebration amongst students.
According to one theory, the event began when four single male students discussed how they could break away from the monotony of having no significant other. In the act of rebellion against Valentine’s day, the students dedicated the 11th of November as Singles Day, a day filled with events and activities in honour of being single.
Ironically, the event blossomed over time and became an excellent way for singles to meet one another. Thanks to its popularity, Chinese e-commerce giant Alibaba offered discounted merchandise.
Is Singles Day Celebrated in UK?
In short, the answer is yes. Singles Day is celebrated around the globe, but primarily in China. While it isn’t noted as an official public holiday in China, Singles Day quickly became one of the world’s most comprehensive online shopping days due to its popularity. Because of its newfound popularity, major retailers around the world caught onto the concept of Singles Day and began offering discounts across their stores and online.
When Does Singles Day Take Place?
Typically, Singles Day is a 24-hour affair, similar to Black Friday and Cyber Monday. The event takes place on the 11th of November, but you may notice some discounts/brands will promote the day for a couple of days.
