520 is right around the corner! But…what exactly is 520?
Are you the part of the general population who scratches your head in confusion when you see others posting “Happy 520!” on social media? Well…good news, you won’t be confused anymore after reading this article!
Origins of 520
520 which is celebrated on May 20th (5th Month, 20th Day) annually is an unofficial holiday which started in China & has slowly started to spread across the world via social media. Even in Singapore, we’re starting to see its popularity rise with more people & companies celebrating 520!
So, why 520 specifically? This is because in the Chinese language, 520 (wǔ èr líng) sounds phonetically similar to 我爱你 (wǒ ài nǐ) which means “I Love You”.
As such, people in China started using 520 as a short form for “I Love You”, similar to how western cultures use “ILY”, and it gradually transitioned to become an unofficial Valentine’s Day where couples express their romantic love to each other with gifts.
