Every year on November 11, Alibaba Group holds the world’s largest 24-hour online shopping event. The 11.11 shopping festival started in 2009 with only 27 merchants to raise awareness of online shopping in China. The event falls during the seasonal changeover, filling a major gap in the traditional offline retail calendar in China. Often referred to as “Singles Day,” the day also falls on a Chinese folk holiday for young single people to celebrate their independence by treating themselves to a special purchase.
