    Can't see the colour of the date above, ie. 7. However, 元宵节 on the 14th is also in black even though the date 14 is highlighted in red isn't it?

    2. This means that the first day of CNY has to be on a Friday, 31 Jan.

    According to http://www.chinesenewyears.info/chin...r-calendar.php the previous years where the first day of CNY was on 31 Jan were:

    31 Jan 1995 - Tuesday

    31 Jan 1976 - Saturday

    31 Jan 1957 - Thursday

    31 Jan 1938 - Monday

    No other dates fulfill the constraints between 1930-2030.

    (I used http://earthonly.com/tools/weekday.php to get the day of week of the above dates.)

    Of course, the calendar itself could be faked or faked words were put in.
    Sala... 14 Feb 2014 is a Friday

    It’s also an auspicious date to get married as you can see from the lunar calendar. Under 宜 (suitable, appropriate) there is a word 嫁娶 which means to marry.
