[The biggest shopping day of the year in the entire world]

What started out as a celebration for bachelors and bachelorettes has turned into a reason to blow large amounts of cash on things you don’t need. November 11th is Singles’ Day, a Chinese holiday that encourages people to spend, spend, spend! This holiday has made it to Taiwan and, like Chinese fighter jets crossing into Taiwan’s ADIZ, it has become an outlet for political tension.
