Singles Day started out in 1993 when single students at China’s Nanjing University chose November 11 (because 11/11 looks like a group of sticks) to celebrate, rather than lament being partnerless. It became a reason for single people to treat themselves to a gift of some sort, and now is among the largest commercial holidays on the calendar
Although it’s a Chinese commercial holiday, Singles Day is starting to create some traction here in the United States, which means that many retailers are now offering deals and discounts.
We love a discount at National Today and have compiled a list of some of the retailers that are offering deals for Singles Day this year. Take a look.
