Happy Single's Day China

c3c8f767a023b7727e4eabda440319aeThank you for making today the biggest shopping day of the year - I'm not sure how it compares to Black Friday or Cyber Monday in the states but I'm happy it exists. Today can be considered the anti-Valentine's Day of China or a reminder to the world to celebrate thy own self.

I prefer the latter.

I was intrigued to learn more about 'Single's Day' or 'Bachelor's Day' and learned it was started in the 90's at universities in Nanjing - leave it to the students to discover cool stuff for the world.

Today is celebrated by partying, hanging out with friends, karaoke or trying your fortune.
