    Dear RonBee,

    Yes, you're right. :D

    We use the lunar calendar and the Western calendar.

    In Chinese, some holidays are according to Western calendar, such as 4th April is our Children's day.

    And some holidays are according to the lunar calendar, like Chinese New Year.
    In 2003, the Chinese New Year is on 1st Feb. :wink:

    Happy Chinese New Year!

    At first blush that would seem to be confusing, but I suppose it's not if you're used to it.

    Dear RonBee,

    About the lunar calendar, I'm often confused, too. :wink:
    But often you add 1 month to the Western calendar, you will get the month of lunar calendar.

    Thanks :D :D :D
