11-11 is singles day

so I guess it’s Singles Day today? that’s cool actually.
I don’t know why but that brightened my mood a little.
whether or not there’s someone out there for everyone, we can all choose to be happy with what we have.

may you all have a lovely day/evening.

It’s also a shopping holiday like Black Friday in some places. Aliexpress.com has a bunch of things on sale :money_mouth_face:

Interestingly, China has a very high male:female ratio - especially in younger generations due to their population control methods. I wonder if it’s a coincidence that singles day is popular there:

Singles day or Guanggun Jie (Chinese: 光棍节; pinyin: Guānggùn Jié ; Wade–Giles: Kuang-kun chieh ; literally: ‘Single Sticks’ Holiday’) is a shopping holiday popular among young Chinese people[1] that celebrate their pride in being single. The date, November 11th (11/11), was chosen because the number “1” resembles an individual who is alone. The holiday has also become a popular date to celebrate relationships, with over 4,000 couples being married in Beijing on this date in 2011, compared to an average of 700 a day
