Holiday Singles Day - When Is It?

Singles day is the newest holiday that started in China. It is the day that is characterized by four singles - ie 1111 or 11/11. The day always takes place on November 11th of the calendar year and has grown to popularity as a huge online shopping day around the world. It is the day when single people treat and indulge themselves to whatever their heart desires.

In 2014, Chinese e-tailer Alibaba set a record with over $9 billion dollars in sales on singles day.  To give you a comparison, Walmart the world's biggest retailer, did just a bit over 1 billion dollars a day on average in 2013.
