Oh, boy! It’s the Year of the Mouse, so you can bet Mickey and friends are taking part.
Lunar New Year honors the celestial journey of the sun and the moon as they cycle into another year.
A lunar calendar is a calendar based upon the monthly cycles of the Moon’s phases (synodic months), in contrast to solar calendars, whose annual cycles are based only directly upon the solar year. The most commonly used calendar, the Gregorian calendar, is a solar calendar system that originally evolved out of a lunar calendar system.
