Singles' Day in China is celebrated on November 11. This date was chosen because 1, which stands out since it is the 11th day of the 11th month, stands for the person who is single, without a partner. Although this day has been observed in China over the years, the same cannot be said for other countries (where it arrived through retail giant Alibaba), which chose to celebrate it on other dates (Spain chose February 13, the day before Valentine's Day).
Here are all the details of the day commemorating people who have no partner.
