TheStreet breaks down how retail sales during the holidays works.

The difference between Cyber Monday and Alibaba Singles Day.

Let's get started: These two days are the biggest online spending days of the year for both the U.S. and China.

Alibaba Singles Day?

China Cyber Monday?

U.S. But there's a key difference.

Alibaba is one company.

It's one of China's largest tech companies - think of it like it's the Amazon of China.

Total e-commerce giant.

And every year, Alibaba has a day where it sells discounted items on its platform and markets the day as kind of a holiday sales day to everyone in China.

The company now does north of $30 billion in sales on Alibaba Singles day.

Cyber Monday is basically a marketing term for the Monday after Thanksgiving, when tons of online retailers, large and small, hawk discounted products online for holiday shoppers ready to spend.

In 2018, Cyber Monday saw $7.8 billion in sales.
