The 20th Of May Is A Very Special Day For The Chinese

May 20, 2019

Dear all,

Happy Chinese love day to you and your family. May your life be filled with love,happiness,and good health!

On behalf our company,hope you have a good love day.

Why is today so special in China?

The 20th of May is a very special day for the Chinese because they celebrate love on this day! For the Chinese, today is like a Valentine’s day.

During this lovely day, couples go on a date or spend time together. And for those who are single, well, it’s a perfect time for them to be brave and show their love to their main crush! Nobody can resist a declaration of love on this special event!

How did 5.20 come to equal a Chinese love word that says I love you?

Talking about this special event, you may wonder why it occurs on this day and not another one in Chinese. The answer is quite simple. It’s all about the sounds. When you write May 20th in numbers, it’s written 5.20. When you pronounce the numbers 5. 2. 0 in Chinese, 五二零 wǔ èr líng, they sound very close to the words 我爱你 wǒ ài nǐ. See? They don’t sound exactly the same, but they sound quite similar, and that’s enough! The Chinese love plays on homophonic words and numbers with hidden meanings.

520 originally started as a slang word used by the Chinese online as a shortcut to say I love you in Chinese, like ILY in English. It then came to be associated with the date May 20th (5.20), which therefore became a very romantic day.

I love you not because of who you are, but because of who I am when I am with you. 

Never stop smiling, not even when you're sad, some man fall in love with your smile.
