wǒ ài nǐ
5.20, May the 20th. For most of us it’s just another “normal” day, but for others, especially in China (and especially for those in a loving relationship) it holds a lot of meaning. 520 is a Chinese love word and a celebration of love, much like Valentine’s day.
But why 5.20?
The answer is simple. The pronunciation of the numbers in the date May the 20th (5.20) in Mandarin is 五二零 (wǔ èr líng), which sounds quite similar to我爱你 (wǒ ài nǐ). In case your Chinese level is HSK -1, wǒ ài nǐ translates to ‘I Love You’ in English.
Perhaps not quite the mythical Chinese love story you were hoping for, but who needs a romantic story to celebrate love, eh? All you need is three magic numbers and a special date planned!
Wait! You do have a special date planned, don’t you?!
