Singles Day (China) History
Singles Day is a Chinese holiday that celebrates being single. In the Chinese language, Singles Day is called Guanggun Jie or bare sticks holiday, which relates to his celebration day of November 11 (or 11/11). In 2019, Singles' Day generated 60 billion US dollars in retail sales in one day.
Singles Day was originally established in 1993 by university students at Nanjing University in China as a celebration of singles marked by purchasing gifts and going out for parties. As the holiday developed, Chinese e-commerce company, Alibaba, the largest online commerce company in the world, saw an opportunity and in 2009, began to promote Singles Day as a shopping celebration. Alibaba and other retailers began to heavily promote purchasing gifts for yourself on this day and so began the current holiday trend of shopping to celebrate being romantically unattached.
