Riddle: What holiday is bigger than Black Friday and Cyber Monday combined?

Wait! You don’t get the answer that easily. Can you guess it in 10 hints?

Go ahead, try to guess, and you’ll find the answer at the bottom:

singles1 1. Started in 1993 in Nanjing University — China.

2. Also known as “Bare Stick’s Holiday.”

3. World’s biggest online shopping event.

4. Also promoted offline, with Alibaba partnering with 52 shopping malls and 60 pop-up shops across 12 cities in China.

5. Celebrates singledom (oops, I may have given the answer away with that hint!).

6. Takes place annually on Nov. 11.

7. Referred to as the Anti-Valentine Day.

8. Ties into a television event that draws 400 million viewers — three times the viewership of the Super Bowl.

9. Sales bigger than Black Friday and Cyber Monday combined.

10. Sales of $30.8 billion in 24 hours.

So, what day is it? It’s Single’s Day!

With this kind of demand, don’t you think we could create something similar in the United States? Of course! Why not?
