11-11 originates in China, as the answer for lonely hearts to Valentines’ day. It is a day-long shopping festival where retailers put out the best deals for eager shoppers. Today, anyone can celebrate 11.11, as long as they have spending money!

Why 11-11?

The date 11:11 was chosen as it resembles 4 solitary bare sticks. It shows four single people coming together as a representation that you can be alone, but alone together. Pretty cool, isn’t it? We love the fact that a community is important for people to interact in. You can grab a single friend or two to spend Singles’ Day together shopping!
