Happy Double Eleven Day!
Today’s date is November 11th, or 11-11, or 双十一. This is a “holiday” that began in the 1990s in China to celebrate being single, but has evolved into a day of retail and restaurant discounts.
Here is a little bit of the history of the “holiday.” Quotation marks are intentional as I’m not certain the distinction is valid 🙂
And below is an advertisement from Wei Duo Li about all the restaurant specials today at Mo Er Cheng (City Mall). If it doesn’t display correctly use this link.
I think archery may also be free to females today.
I saw a lot of promotions on wechat today for getting discounts or coupons for following public accounts or sharing information on your moments.
Basically anywhere you go today, I would ask if they are having a “shuang shi yi” special. Chances are, you can save some money or get some free stuff!
If you know of a great shuang shi yi deal, let us know in the comments!
