Well, many of you do not have any idea what does 20th May represents and why it is celebrated my couples?
In the Chinese language, 520 has a similar pronunciation tone as ‘I love you’ in Mandarin.
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. As for 520, it means 我爱你 wǒ ài nǐ, and is a great Chinese love word to say today (and whenever you can) to your loved one. Have a nice and lovely day full of 520 and love! Don’t forget to share your love, as much as you can, express your love to your loved ones.
