Emperor Wu of the Han Dynasty consistently measures a period of the year from the solar base calendar. Hence, he established the first day of the month of the traditional Chinese calendar as the beginning of the year and the New Year is celebrated in accordance to this day. The date of the Chinese New Year changes every year as it is based on the lunar Calendar. The date of the Chinese New Year is determined according to the moon’s orbit around the earth. This normally falls on the second new moon after the winter.

The St. Valentine’s Day contains reminders of both Christian and ancient Roman traditions. Valentine or Valentinus was a priest who served during the third century in Rome. During that time, Emperor Claudius II decided that single men made better soldiers than those with wives and families and outlawed marriage for young men. St. Valentine, who realized this injustice, defended over this idea and continued to perform marriages for young lovers in secret. When Claudius discovered Valentine’s

actions, he ordered that he be put to death. It is also noted that Valentine sent his first greeting to a young girl who he fell in love with on this day. It is alleged that he wrote a letter signed ‘From your valentine’ which is an expression that is still in use today. Although there has been no definite agreement to any of his stories, Valentine was always portrayed a sympathetic, heroic and romantic figure.
