The calendar New Year also makes me think about celebrating Chinese New Years which we do in our house as well. It's the Year of the Pig. Robin, from the Chinese New Year blog sent along this cool moon phase calendar as a reminder.
As you probably know, each Chinese month (and year) starts on the new moon, and the middle of the month is a full moon. With the attached pdf file you can see that the phases of the moon do not line up with our months, and why 1/1 is on February 18th this year.
If you are interested in an overview of Chinese New Year, Robin's blog is fabulous resource for educational activities about Chinese New Year which is celebrated in Cambodia.
I also found a moon phase widget!
