Culture and Traditions By: Marlen Thomas, Alex Ochoa, Jennifer Martinelli, Darrius Wynn, Richard Hall, Chantal Dru, Sade' Cooper The western calender measures the years by using the Earth's position in relation to the sun, but the chinese calender measures by linear patterns. It's based on the moon not the sun. The western calender has 365-366 days and the chinese has 352-355 days. Chinese calenders is used by animals. The western calender is used by counting numbers and days. In chinese astrology, I was born under an oxen. Under this sign my favorite season is Winter, direction is North, and sum sign is Capricorn. Being an Oxen makes me a strong-minded, careful, patient, stubborn, leader. Also Ox's are smart, trustworthy, caring, honorable people, they like to get things right the first time, some may think they are too serious and incapable of loosening up , but really they keep a shield up to keep from getting hurt. Oxen's are good advice givers and don't exactly care how it makes you feel. If one manages to stand on an egg for exactly , 12 :00 noon this symbolizes that the following year will be a lucky one. This means that the land will be propenous and lucky. The Dragon Boat Festival is celebrated by boat races in the shape of dragons . Competing teams row their boats forward to a drum beat racing to reach the finish line first . It's happens in the middle of September at about the middle of equinox. It is held when the moon is full. It snows that means it symbols the end of the summer harvest, and that its times to celebrate for all the food that has been collected. The woman usually bind their feet to look beautiful. In the earlier day's in ancient chinese history, the woman would bind their feet so they would have a better chance at getting married. So therefore, they usually did this as a way of trying to look beautiful. Pope Gregory created the western calender. He made it as a reform to the previously used Julian calender. under the Georgian calender a solar year is divided up into 12 months or vernal equinox to vernal equinox is 365 days, 5 hours, 48 minutes and 46 seconds.
