5/20, Everyone!

In Mandarin, the digits 5, 2, 0 (五二零) are pronounced as wû èr líng. The phrase I love you (我爱你) is pronounced wô aì nî, which sounds close enough that young Chinese will use 520 in text messages as a code for "I love you." I hear the number 520 bus is a popular scenic route today among couples.

So whatever else happens today, remember that 520.

In Japanese, 3 is 'san' and 9 is 'ku/kyuu', and so shorthand slang for "thank you" is 3 9 -- "sankyuu!"
