Chinese Rush To Have Olympic Wedding

An estimated 10,000 people are expected to marry in China on the opening day of the Beijing Olympics - August 8, 2008.

The number 8 is thought to be particularly auspicious in Chinese folklore, so the 8th day of the 8 month in the 8th year of the new century was always going to be a propitious day to tie the knot but the fact that it is also the start of the Beijing Olympics means that the special day has become especially popular for nuptials.

And if wedding night and honeymoon passions lead to the bride getting pregnant, there's a good chance the new addition to the family might be named "Aoyun," which means "Olympic Games."
