How to Calculate Your Birthday According to Chinese Calendar


My birthday according to the Gregorian calendar is September 23, 1988. But the Gregorian calendar seems a bit passé. So this year I will celebrate my birthday according to the Chinese calendar.

To calculate your Chinese calendar birthday go to Baidu’s calendar converter; go to the year, month, and day of your birth; hover over that day and note the 农历 month (月) and day (曰). Mine is the 8th month and 13th day. Now go to this year and hover over dates in a similar range until you see the same month and day. This year, my lunar birthday is September 10, 2011 instead of September 23 and next year it’ll be September 28.
