Singles’ Day: the day after Saint Valentine’s

Since Saint Valentine’s Day is only celebrated by happy couple who are in love, such as boyfriend and girlfriend, husband and wife, etc. it’s such a depressing day for all the people who are still single and don’t have their Valentine.

So, instead of locking themselves in the house, crying and eating popcorn while watching some chick flick movies such as “Bridget Jones’s Diary”, Italians found a better solution as protest for a day in which chocolates, heart and roses are the only things you can see around.

The solution is organizing another festivity, which is called Singles’ Day. I swear I am not kidding, believe me and learn more about this holiday.
