A numerology fixation common throughout Asia has triggered a spike in weddings on 11/11/2011.
The outlet also claims that 5,000 couples are tying the knot today in Shanghai alone. A 80-couple mass wedding in Ho Chi Minh Vity, Vietnam, will be the city's largest in history.
And the triple-11 craze isn't just for lovebirds: pregnant South Korean women are reportedly eager to deliver their babies on 11/11/11, even if that calls for a caesarian section procedure
But this runs counter to another Chinese interpretation: all those ones evoke a certain solitary vibe. According to the state-run Xinhua outlet, many Chinese consider Nov. 11 in an ordinary year to be "singles day."
Well, if that's your take, just wait nine days for 20/11/2011.
Two sets of 2011!
With that much numerological power, how could your marriage ever go wrong?
