    China has used the Gregorian calendar since 1930.
    To synchronize the calendar, a leap month or even two months are necessary.
    Some use the calendar merely to pick lucky and unlucky days.
    It is very complex to figure out when a leap month is added. This has led many to believe the leap month is a bearer of bad luck.
    It takes 19 years to syncs with the Gregorian calendar.
    The Chinese were not concerned about the numbering of years.
    Many other Asian calendars like Korea's and Japan's are identical or very similar to the Chinese calendar.
    It is used in other Asia countries besides China.
    It borrows from both lunar and solar calendar.
    It is traditionally used for East Asian holidays such as the Chinese New Year.
    The calendar is calculated by observatories in China.
    The months are named after plants.
    Because it is a lunar calendar, seasonal markers were added so farmers would know when to plant crops.
