While the majority of the Countries around the world use a Solar calendar to establish the length of a year based on the Earth’s rotation around the sun, some countries and groups use a Lunar calendar. This means that one month is complete with a full cycle of the Moon, from New Moon to New Moon. The Lunar calendar year consists of twelve months, just like the Solar calendar, yet each month is slightly shorter. Rather than the average month lasting more than 30 days such as in the Solar calendar, each month in the Lunar calendar is approximately 29.5 days.
