This is the beautiful moon in the night sky. But sometimes in myths and legends, the moon that is most apparent at night is clouded in mystery and thought and felt to be ominous.

However, the chinese believes in the Chinese Lunar New Year, and computes the year based on the moon cycles, unlike the western calendar years. The first day of the first month of the lunar year is known as 正月 and the first and fifteenth days, known as 初一and 十五 are the most important days of the months.
