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 the 12 year cycle.

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