Agriculture played an integral role in ancient Chinese culture. They, like all farmers, plowed in spring, weeded in summer, gained in autumn, and stored in winter yearly. The ancient philosophers recorded auspicious and inauspicious events on the calendar, so such a calendar is called the farmer calendar. Author Mr. Kang Wu offers both a 2018 calendar geared toward farmers as well as a reference guide to aspects of Chinese culture. It presents ancient algorithms, statistics, and numbers operation, and gives insight in all ancient lifestyles in China such as the occult, philosophy, and literature. Filled with a plethora of information, 2018 Farmer Calendar includes a timeline geared toward the farmer as well as Chinese cultural insights.
