As you might know, not every country on this planet follows the Gregorian calendar. While most modern countries have adopted the before mentioned for their official activities, there are still about 40 other calendars actively used, particularly for determining religious dates.

The best known of the several variations this calendar comes in, as well as the most popular zodiac, is without a doubt the Chinese edition.

Now, that may not exactly sound like something charming you want to be called, but this little fella actually ranks first.
