Palm-size Chinese lunar traditional for the 365 days of the year!
Lunar calendar (农历) is a great creation with its inventions of the intercalary month and the 24 solar terms. It is still used for marking traditional East Asian holidays such as the Chinese New Year, the Duan Wu Festival, Mid-Autumn Festival, Winter Solstice Festival and many more. In astrology, it is used for choosing the most auspicious date for a wedding or the opening of a building.
This calendar is a tear off calendar, which you could tear down each page day-by-day easily. After tearing the pages off, you could store them on your pages, or use them to adorn your outgoings or any collage artworks.
All that in a single calendar!
I’m still sorting out what each part of each day’s markings mean:
- The characters under WEDNESDAY are Wednesday in Chinese.
- Rejab is the seventh month of the Islamic calendar.
- It’s the year 1442 on the Islamic calendar, which appears in the bottom right.
- The 19 in the bottom left is the age of the Moon.
If you know more than that, please let me know.
