Chinese New Year Tickets

Australia has had tickets for the Chinese New Year, which is based on the lunar calendar. They usually have the titles of, 'Lucky Year of the Pig', 'Year of the Pig' or Lucky Pig' etc. If you want more information on the Chinese New Year Click here.

Below is a list of the years matching the Chinese Zodiacs. If you have a ticket with a Chinese Zodiac on it, e.g. Year of the Pig, then you can say it from the year or 1995 (due to the fact that there wouldn't be tickets in the very, very early years of 1983 and we haven't go to 2007 yet).

Known years with a 'year of the' ticket are shown in Yellow.

What's a Blue Moon?

When is the Moon "blue," in a calendrical sense? According to the Maine almanac, a Blue Moon occurs when a season has four full Moons, rather than the usual three. This type of Blue Moon is found only in February, May, August, and November, one month before the next equinox or solstice. According to modern folklore, a Blue Moon is the second full Moon in a calendar month. This type of Blue Moon can occur in any month but February, which is always shorter than the time between successive full Moons. Sky & Telescope diagram.
