Happy New Year (Chinese)!

While the Gregorian Calendar was adopted by China in 1949, the much older by thousands of years Chinese Calendar has begun today, 3 February (Gregorian Calendar)! It is a time for many for family gatherings and celebrations which can last up to fifteen days. This year is the Year of the Rabbit. The Chinese Calendar is based on the positions of the earth and moon relative to each other (lunar calendar) and as such the exact date of the start of New Year can change with respect to the Gregorian Calendar. Happy New Year! Happy Year of the Rabbit!

Happy New Year (Old Calendar)!

To everyone celebrating New Year’s on the Old Calendar, Happy New Year!

The Old Calendar was used by much of the world for a long time. It is also known as the Julian Calendar, coming to us via Julius Caesar. Over time, people realized that the calendar was off by several days. Part of the world jumped ahead, forever losing those days on the calendar while another part did not. While the New Calendar, also called the Gregorian Calendar after Pope Gregory XIII, was adopted eventually by more countries as time passed, some people still adhere to the Old Calendar for religious reasons. The difference between these two calendars at present is thirteen days.

To conclude, there is only one January 1st on both calendars; however, what day one recognizes as the first can be different and offset thirteen days from the other. This is the same for Christmas and other days. For example, 25 December on the Old Calendar is 7 January on the New Calendar, just as 1 January on the Old Calendar is 14 January on the New Calendar.

There are many other calendars in the world and, for that matter, different years and time periods to measure such time in existence and use. For example, while some see this year as 2011, others in the world have different numbers based on their cultural and other events for measuring time.

We at Little Mountain Web Design enjoy learning about different cultures. If anyone would like to add to a discussion of different calendars, please be invited to do so in the comment section or contact us to be a guest blogger. Thank you very much.
