Introduction

Is one birthday in one year not enough for you? Then consider celebrating your birthday according to the Chinese
lunar calendar (nongli 農曆) as well. Example: Former ROC President Lee Teng-hui 李登輝 was born on Jan. 15,
1923. According to the Chinese lunar calendar, that date was the 29
th
day of the eleventh lunar month (1923’s Lunar
New Year was on Feb. 16). Accordingly, President Lee can celebrate his birthday on Jan. 15 but also on the 29
th
day
of the eleventh lunar month every year. In 2010, the 29
th
day of the eleventh lunar month was on Jan. 13. In fact, in
1992 Lee could actually celebrate his birthday three times—on Jan. 15 according to the solar year and on Jan. 3 and
Dec. 22 according to his lunar birth date.
The length of a regular lunar year usually ranges between 354 and 355 days, there are short months (yuexiao 月小)
with 29 days and long months (yueda 月大) with 30 days. To make up for the discrepancy with the 365-day solar
year/366-day leap year, a leap month (runyue 閏月) is added every two to four years. While the leap month is counted
like the same month as the preceding regular month (e. g. a fifth regular lunar month would be followed by a “fifth”
leap month), it does not need to have the same number of days—a long regular month with 30 days can be followed
by a short leap month with 29 days and vice versa.
The first and the last month of the Chinese lunar year each have another name besides their numerical
denomination—the first month is also called zhengyue 正月 (Lunar New Year is sometimes also called zhengdan 正旦),
the twelfth month is also called layue 臘月.
Directories with conversion tables for the lunar calendar like in this file are usually called “Ten Thousand Years
Calendar” (wannianli 萬年曆) in Chinese. Please note that in the detailled lunar calendar 1900-2100 (p. 17 ff.) Sundays
are indicated by bold blue figures in italics.

HOLIDAYS IN THE CHINESE LUNAR YEAR

In the Chinese lunar calendar, the most important holidays are Lunar New Year (chunjie 春節/guonian 過年) on the
first day of the first lunar month, Lantern Festival (yuanxiaojie 元宵節) on the 15
th
day of the first lunar month,
Dragon Boat Festival (duanwujie 端午節) on the fifth day of the fifth lunar month, and Mid-Autumn Festival/Moon
Festival (zhongqiujie 中秋節) on the 15
th
day of the eighth lunar month. In Taiwan ROC, government agencies and
most offices are closed on the days around Lunar New Year, on the Dragon Boat Festival, and on the Moon Festival.
The range of these major holidays in the Gregorian calendar between 1900 and 2100 is as follows:

THE GANZHI CYCLE

The Chinese lunar calendar consists of a 60-year cycle based on the ganzhi system. Ganzhi literally means “stem
branch” and stands for a combination of the “Ten Heavenly Stems” (tiangan 天干) with the “Twelve Earthly
Branches” (dizhi 地支).
The Ten Heavenly Stems represent the Five Primary Elements (wuxing 五行)—wood (mu 木), fire (huo 火), earth
(tu 土), metal (jin 金), and water (shui 水)—with their respective Yin (陰) or Yang (陽) aspect [

]: 1. jia 甲 = Yang
wood, 2. yi 乙 = Yin wood, 3. bing 丙 = Yang fire, 4. ding 丁 = Yin fire, 5. wu 戊 = Yang earth, 6. ji 己 = Yin earth,
7. geng 庚 = Yang metal, 8. xin 辛 = Yin metal, 9. ren 壬 = Yang water, and 10. gui 癸 = Yin water.
The Twelve Earthly Branches represent the 12 animals signs of the Chinese zodiac (shengxiao 生肖): zi 子 = Rat
(shu 鼠), chou 丑 = Ox (niu 牛), yin 寅 = Tiger (hu 虎), mao 卯 = Rabbit (tu 兔), chen 辰 = Dragon (long 龍), si 巳 =
Snake (she 蛇), wu 午 = Horse (ma 馬), wei 未 = Sheep (yang 羊), shen 申 = Monkey (hou 猴), you 酉 = Rooster (ji 雞),
xu 戌 = Dog (gou 狗), and hai 亥 = Pig (zhu 豬).
Example: The year 1911 had the ganzhi designation xinhai 辛亥, meaning that it was the year of the Pig in the
Metal element with Yin aspect. A table showing all sixty ganzhi denominations can be found on page 12 of this file.
The detailled lunar calendar 1900-2100 comprises more than three full ganzhi cycles.

NON-LUNAR FEATURES OF THE CHINESE CALENDAR

The Chinese calendar traditionally also observes events that actually belong to the solar calendar like the summer and
winter solstices and the spring and autumn equinoxes. Every year is divided into 24 solar divisions, with one jie (節)
or “segment” and one qi (氣) or “climate” in each of the twelve months. The 24 Solar Terms (ershisi jieqi 二十四節氣)
include the beginning dates of the four seasons, the solstices and equinoxes; those eight dates are often referred to as
the “Eight Festivals” (bajie 八節).

Official designations of the years

In Imperial China, the years were counted according to the reign of the ruling emperor (nianhao 年號). When an
emperor died, the following year was counted as the first year of the next emperor. (See table below with
information about the last three emperors of the Qing dynasty 清朝, 1644-1911.) In the case of Guangxu, the first
year of his reign as counted in the solar calendar was the same as the year of his ascension because his predecessor
had died that year (Jan. 12) before Lunar New Year (Feb. 6).

Emperor Born Ascended throne Died Reign Year 1 Lunar New Year
Tongzhi 同治 1856, April 27 1861, Nov. 11 1875, Jan. 12 1862 1862—Jan. 30
Guangxu 光緒 1871, Aug. 14 1875, Feb. 25 1908, Nov. 14 1875 1875—Feb. 6
Xuantong 宣統 1906, Feb. 7 1908, Dec. 2 1967, Oct. 17 1909 1909—Jan. 22

After the Hsinhai Revolution (xinhai geming 辛亥革命) on Oct. 10, 1911 the power of the Qing court rapidly eroded.
The Republic of China (Zhonghua minguo 中華民國, abbrev. ROC) was officially established on Jan. 1, 1912, shortly
before the last Qing emperor abdicated on Feb. 12, 1912, and that year was duly designated as the first year of the
Republic of China (minguo yuannian 民國元年).
In today’s Taiwan, biographies in official records have yet another method to refer to the years prior to the
Hsinhai Revolution—the “year before the Republic” (minguoqian 民國前). Accordingly, 1911 was not only emperor
Xuantong’s year 3, but also the year 1 before the Republic (minguoqian yinian 民國前一年), 1900 the year 12 before
the Republic and so on, as years prior to 1912 can be counted backwards in that manner.
