May 20th--- Say I LOVE YOU bravely!!!

The Network Valentine’s Day in China is on May 20th, which is a very popular festival celebrated by young people in China. Since the pronunciation of 520 (wǔ èr líng ) is very similar to the pronunciation of我爱你(wǒ ài nǐ)in Chinese.

Actually, it is originated from a Chinese song called Love Number sung by范晓萱(fàn xiǎo xuān), a singer from Taiwan.
