Everyone loves shopping and everyone is ecstatic with sales and deals.

What Is Singles Day And How Does It Differ From Black Friday?


Singles Day came into being as an anti- Valentines celebration for singles in China way back in the year 1190. It was The November 11 being the day since when written the date will look like 11.11 for one-one-one-one. It was then adopted by Alibaba in 2009 where it became a day not just for single status but for everyone who wants to give themselves a gift. With China’s male surplus it became known as Bachelors’ day.

How it started?

It was then adopted by e-commerce giant Alibaba (China’s Amazon equivalent) in 2009 and it has now become a day when everyone, regardless of their single status buys themselves gifts. Originally the products sold are for singles but today it sells everything imaginable. The good thing about it is the fact that these are at a discounted price.

Comparing Singles day with Black Friday

Singles day has by far surpassed all expectations far from the Black Friday sales in multiple folds. Within the 24 hours span of time, £11.4bn worth of products was already sold. But the fact remains that both offers a great chance for people to buy products at a bargain price at Singles Day and Black Friday. So, it is best to prepare for this time by savings some amount earlier on. So that when it is there you can grab the item that you like without having to feel guilty of the things that you have to sacrifice just to be able to buy the item.

Final Thought

Opportunities like this should have preparation and for the family to agree on what should come first. So being focus will help you achieve the biggest savings for these events not just for yourself but for the whole family as well.
