There are some people argue that Gregorian (western) calendar should be used. Think about the chart has several hundreds years of history, and the Gregorian calendar was not adopted by China till early 20th century, therefore the argument is simply not valid.

What is Chinese Lunar Calendar?

Lunar months are determined by the period required for the moon to complete its full phasic cycle of 29 and a half days, a standard that makes the lunar year a full 11 days shorter than its solar counterpart. This difference is made up every 19 years by the addition of seven lunar months, which is called leap month. For more detail about the Chinese Lunar Calendar, please read this.
