The Chinese Calendar,
a
Brief History




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

The Lunar Calendar is steeped in tradition, based on the appearance of the new moon, the calendar associates a different animal with each year in the 12-year cycle.

Those who follow the Chinese Calendar believe each animal has a profound influence a person's characteristics to those born under the year of its rule.
