It is November 11, 2010, and for all the people in China, we know that today is Singles Day. Singles Day or One’s Day or Guang Gun Jie is a Chinese pop culture holiday on November 11 for people who are still living the single life. 11•11 is common accepted as the date of Singles Day, and there are various dates on Singles Day with a smaller scale.11•1 and 1•11 are called Singles Day (middle), while the first day of a year was the least mentioned Singles Day’s date.
For breakfast on Singles Day, singles often eat four Youtiao (deep-fried dough sticks) representing the four "ones" in "11.11" and one Baozi (steamed stuffed bun) representing the middle dot. Some singles also choose to say goodbye to their single lives on this day: many attend ‘blind date’ parties and many people choose to marry on this day. In addition to meaning ‘single,’ the four ‘ones’ of the date can also mean ‘only one’ as in ‘the only one for me.’ Some people will use this date and this meaning to tell their special someone that they are the only ‘one’ in their heart.
The above introduction of Singles day comes from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia with the page of http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Singles_Day in English and http://zh.wikipedia.org/zh-cn/%E5%85%89%E6%A3%8D%E8%8A%82 in Chinese.
It comes from the latest news that the famous Japanese AV actor Aoisola opened her mini-blog on sina.com.cn this morning. Her mini-blog address is http://t.sina.com.cn/1739928273. There have been more than 50,000 fans following her and the number is still increasing with the speed of more than 20 per second. Today is still her birthday and she wanted to communicate with Chinese network people from the channel of the largest mini-blog community of sina.com in China. In the earlier days she opened her mini-blog account on twitter.com and it brought about a rush of discussion of concern in China. In the special day of today, the action of opening her mini-blog on sina.com might raise another wave of attention. Many Chinese call her teacher Cang friendly and admire her on her devotion to teaching with moral and artistic qualities. This event on this special day might bring us much happiness.
In one QQ group, I saw one funny handwriting letter from Chairman Hu as it seen as follows. I wish it can also bring you something smiling.
Here are some elegant sentences related to Singles Day and wish you like them.
One day someone will walk into your life, and then you realize love was always worth waiting for.
If he once really came to you, treasure his love; if then he went back to his beloved, let him be the passer-by.
There are things that we don’t want to happen but have to accept, things we don’t want to know but have to learn, and people we can’t live without but have to let go.
At last I’d like to recommend you one piece of song sung by one of my network friends. Wish you a happy Singles Day!
