Brief History of the
Chinese Calendar

In 2637 B.C., a Chinese Emperor named Huangdi invented the Chinese Calendar.

The Chinese calendar is based on a twelve-year cycle of astronomical observations of the sun and the phases of the moon.

Each year in that twelve-year cycle has an animal sign.

The Chinese believe each animal has a profound influence on those born under the year of its rule.
