: Can someone tell me if the Chinese calendar year is the same as the American calendar. Thanks
No the Chinese calendar is based on the lunar system and is different from that
of the western calendar. The lunar month has 30 day (30x12=360days) and that
why every few years, an extra month is thrown into the year to prevent the seasons
from shifting to the wrong months.
