Brief History of the
Chinese Calendar




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 a 12 year cycle.

These animal signs are: mouse, ox, tiger, rabbit, dragon, snake, horse, sheep, monkey, rooster, dog and pig.

Those who follow the Chinese Calendar believe each animal has a profound influence on the personality of those born under the year of its rule.
