The date is chosen because it's got "four bare sticks" there, 1111, bare, not a single branch
hence single, so single. LOL.
This soon to be globally-accepted special day started in 1993 at Nanjing University, China where students observed or rather enjoyed the day celebrating their singledom. Interesting eh? But I guess for single people every day is a chill day, there's less stress cos we don't have to worry about unfaithful spouse or stubborn kids or nosy in-laws. LOL.
However, since 2009, thanks to Jack Ma (who needs no introduction), the day, 11th November has become an utterly frenzied shopping day online at Tmall and offline too, not just for the singles, though. Well, God knows the number of single people in China or in the Rest of the World, and only God knows how much one married man benefits/profits from the day. I hate you Ma. LOL. Anyhow, I'm sure there are millions of consumers who are pleased with their catch-of-the-day.
Everything you need to know about Singles' Day:
Single or not, it's best to be unattached.
Well, you know to whom we should be attached to.
Glory be to Him.
And the other special being - Prophet Muhammad salallah alaihi wasalam, our ultimate rescuer.
