When is Singles Day 2023: How to celebrate if you're single
Singles' Day is celebrated annually on Nov 11. It originated as an anti-Valentine's Day celebration.
The global event has become the largest shopping day worldwide, surpassing Cyber Monday.
The date 11/11 was chosen to symbolize the unattached, representing "bare branches" in Chinese culture.
Started in 2009, Singles' Day has been extensively promoted by Chinese e-commerce giant Alibaba.
Alibaba's co-founder Jack Ma has linked the day to consumerism, encouraging singles to participate.
In 2019, Alibaba alone raked in an incredible $35 billion in sales during Singles' Day.
Celebrating Singles' Day doesn't require being single; it entails indulging in self-appreciation.
