As Sonia's murky past resurfaces, her reality starts to crumble.Everything in her life begins to change - - questions arise and answers only arrive through a continuous twist and turn of events keeping viewers on edge until the film's final moments.Unfortunately they run on different cycles and can be difficult to measure.In the past when most people lived on the land planting crops and raising stock seasonal variations were key.Note that the ancient Romans started the year with the month of March with the Spring Equinox and had ten months (hence our October meaning 8th but now the 10th month; November meaning 9 and December meaning 10).

In fact it varies in the same way that Jewish Passover, Christian Easter and Islamic Muharram move around, it is all to do with the moon.You may also wish to celebrate that 2006 is an unusually long Chinese year as it is 385 days in length (a Chinese year can vary from 353 to 385 days long). It is also a Chinese leap year with a whole extra seventh month.Before looking at the complicated Chinese Calendar it is worth starting by taking a look at Calendars in general and then the familiar Western system.The very name 'Calendar' is derived from 'Calends' referring to the way that the Roman astronomer would 'proclaim' [kalendae] the new moon at the start of a month.The sun and moon cycles are not synchronised and even worse one annual trip around the sun is not a whole number of days (on average 365.2425) so you can not just count days and lunar months to get to the same date in the year.
