The copyright page: illustration: calendar occupies an important position in the thousands of years of Chinese civilization. The Chinese descendants multiplied, the first is to rely on farming and agriculture based, ancestors of sunrise, sunset, after a long-term accumulation of experience, mastered the sun changes, which separates the seasonal change of seasons, and with the heavenly stems and earthly branches to the computation time, this is the early calendar. In order to determine what time should be cultivated, what time the harvest, this calendar has been used for thousands of years, this also is come first on the list in the world. It is said that in ancient times of the Yellow Emperor, there are special observation of the sun changes when officials, according to local production and living needs, through long-term observation, the year as 366 days, and distinguish the four seasons in a, B, C, D, e, F, G, Xin, Wang, sunflower, for the heavenly stems, sub, ugly, Yin, Mao, Chen, Si, Wu, did not, Shen, unitary, Xu, Hai is the twelve Earthly Branches, with each other, into Jia Zi Ji day law unique to china. This is our lunar calendar is the Jia Zi Ji day law, continues to this day. The ancient calendar after the accurate calculation of the modern, or extremely accurate, it is the crystallization of the wisdom of working people in ancient china. In the Western Han Dynasty Dade series "Da Dai Li" in an article called "Xia Xiaozheng" data, it is to retain the Xia and Shang Dynasties calendar. "Xia Xiaozheng" the month of the lunar calendar is, today's lunar calendar. The record of 12 months in a year, every month, meteorological, phenological astronomical farming and farming related information. Also called the lunar calendar lunar calendar, the year is called a year old, the twelve Earthly Branches in December and cooperate with each other. Every year lunar January (January) as the beginning of the year, lunar January day as the beginning of each year. Can say, now our annual Spring Festival, is the first day of the beginning of the year. There are certain differences of the lunar calendar and the lunar calendar. As early as 4000 years ago, Mesopotamia (bottom of Griess River, the Euphrates) people have used this calendar, which is a round moon rules get calendar according to observation. It is also a year is divided into 12 months, monthly in crescent looking for at the start of the month, the full moon day for months, and when at the end of a crescent moon moon. In order to correct the error, each separated by a few years to set up a month. The lunar calendar to the moon cycle time is one month, 12 months is doing a year. However, the moon cycle for one lunar month, is the 29 day at twelve forty-four and 3 seconds, it is 29 days, 30 days less than. For the partyThen, the lunar calendar the month into large and Luna two, every single month is large (30 days), every two months are small (29 days), the total of a year is 354 days. In fact, a lunar month is not exactly equal to the average of a large and a small month of 29 days, 29 days more than 44 minutes 2.8 seconds. So the 12 lunar month in fact than 354 days 8 hours 48 minutes and 34 seconds, 30 years will be more than 11 days. Therefore, the lunar calendar to place 11 years leap year 30 years, every year in the 12 months to add a day. Lunar leap year is 355 days, so, the lunar calendar every 30 years 19 years 11 years 354 days, 355 days, the average length of the year is 354 days 8 hours 48 minutes. It's a year than the tropical year almost short 11 days, 3 years is a short one month. So, the use of the lunar calendar, new year must not be in the winter, it can in the spring, also can be in the summer or fall. The only advantage of it, is what every date on the lunar calendar can know the shape of the moon. The lunar calendar is a calendar, because it and agricultural production and people's daily life are not coordinated, so the world except several Islamic countries because of religious reasons still use, other countries have abandoned. The lunar calendar, the lunar calendar month of time as the average time. This point and pure the same, but the use of Intercalations way and twenty-four solar term way, so that the average length of calendar year is equal to the years, it also has the solar components, so it is purely the good. The lunar new year, is said to be our ancestors in the Xia Dynasty (seventeenth Century BC) have used a calendar, so, after the founding of new Chinese people still call it the traditional Chinese calendar, after 1970 China called the "lunar". As for the origin of "Chinese" one, probably because in ancient agricultural country, so making calendar must be based on agriculture. The lunar calendar is a lunar base. Synodic month time is 29 days 12 hours 44 minutes and 3 seconds (29.5366 days), therefore, the lunar calendar is about 30 days, 29 days Xiaoyue, but it is not exactly the same as purely lunar calendar, purely because of the lunar calendar is the size on alternate arrangement, and the size of the month after the Lunar New Year calculated and determined. Lunar calendar each month as it happens is "new moon" (that is, the moon in the solar terrestrial intermediate, and the black with the half side toward the earth.). May sometimes appear two big, also can be two consecutive month. Because of the synodic month is slightly greater than 29 and a half days, so there are 53 large and 47 month in lunar calendar every 100 calendar months in rio.
