Chinese New Year is the kind of holiday we can all get behind: a 15-day celebration centering around food and family, with traditions designed to attract luck and fortune.
The principles of the Chinese Calendar use the following four rules which the ancient Chinese made them thousand years ago.
- The new moon day is the first day of a lunar month
- The name of a lunar name is named by the Solar Center Point
- The first lunar month of the year is the Tiger month, which contains Rain Water center point
- The lunar month without a Center Point is a Leap month ( Intercalary Month )
The Start of Spring is the time when the sun enters the 315th degree on the tropical zodiac. The Start of Spring in China Standard Time is at 6:04 A.M. on February 4, 2014. This day is not the Chinese New Year day. 2014 Chinese New Year Day is on January 31, 2014 in China Standard Time. Chinese New Year Day is the new moon day of the first lunar month. The new moon time is at 5:39 A.M. of January 31, 2014 in China Standard Time.
The Start of Spring in US Eastern Standard Time is at 17:04 P.M. on February 3, 2014, and in the US Pacific Standard Time is at 14:04 P.M. on February 3, 2014. Therefore, the 2014 Horse year starts on February 3, 2014 in US time zones.
