What's the biggest online shopping day in the world?
Not Valentine's Day.
Not Cyber Monday or Black Friday.
They are the days that follow Thanksgiving in the US and usher in the start of the holiday shopping season.
The winner is China's Singles' Day, celebrated November 11, or 11.11.
Singles' Day began as a day for unmarried or uncoupled people to celebrate their lives.
Single students, looking for an excuse to buy themselves presents, started it on November 11, 1993, reported The Guardian.
It is symbolized by the four number ones in the date of November 11 ? 11.11— and is also called Double Eleven, in reference to the day it was started, said the BBC.

But some kinds of exercise may be better than others.
Running, for example, may help to protect against heart disease and other health problems.
Running may also help you live longer.

China eased the country's one child per couple policy at the end of October.
All married couples are permitted to have two children.

Couples face problems when trying to conceive through clinics in China.
Some couples prefer to select the gender of their child.
The government does not permit gender selection, or advanced fertility methods.
Middle class Chinese couples travel to Australia, Thailand or the United States for fertility treatments.
These foreign markets could benefit from an increased demand for fertility services.
