520 (wǔ'èrlíng)

Here is another special day for love. What is the meaning behind 520? In the Mandarin language, the numbers five, two and zero are pronounced wǔ èr líng, which sounds very close to wǒ ài nǐ (I love you). Hence this date of May 20 is associated with a romantic day or the Chinese Valentine’s Day. Many take the opportunity of the date to wed.
