I've updated this Meetup. For more details, see the full listing:

1111日,光棍节,源于这一天日期里有四个阿拉伯数字“1“形似四根光滑的棍子,而光棍在中文有单身的意思,所以光棍节是单身一族的一个另类节日,这个日子便被定为“光棍节”(One's Day) 于上世纪九十年代初诞生于南京高校,是校园趣味文化的代表产品之一。

大光棍节是:1111日,小光棍节是:11日,中光棍节是111日和111日。

Apparently Tomorrow has a name Guang1 Gun Jie2, a holiday invented by college students in Nanjing. All 1's represent singles or unattached people.
