China began to have a calendar about 4,000 years ago. According to a page of the oracle bone calendar in the oracle bone inscriptions, it proves that the calendar of the Yin Dynasty has reached a considerable level.
Tang poetry: "There is no calendar day in the mountains, and the year is cold." "Calendar day" may be the earliest desk calendar. In the Tang Dynasty, historians cut paper on a daily basis and bound them into volumes, one per month. The month and date are written on each page, and there is a blank space for the eunuchs to record the emperor's words and deeds. This is the "calendar day".
At the end of the month, the "calendar day" is first handed over to the emperor for review, and then archived by the historian for the compilation of "National History". Because of its function of keeping track of time and discussing affairs, civil and military officials followed suit.
According to historical records, about 1,100 years ago, in the first year of Emperor Shunzong's reign in the Tang Dynasty, the calendar was already in use in the imperial palace. The calendar at that time, also known as the imperial calendar, not only recorded dates, but was also an important material for compiling national history. The calendar at that time was similar to Dian'er. The year was divided into 12 volumes, the number of pages in each volume was determined by the number of days in each month, and the month and date were written on each page, which was then handed over to the eunuch who served the emperor. Temporarily keep it until the eunuchs write down the emperor's words and deeds on the daily empty pages and submit it to the emperor for approval at the end of each month, and then send it to the historian for archives. After refining, polishing and recording, it becomes the history of the country.
Later, because the calendar brought a lot of convenience to life, it gradually entered the families of many high-ranking officials in the dynasty. After some changes, they compiled their own calendars; later, with the popularization of calendars, the development of family , people also put the calendar on the calendar; solar terms and zodiac auspicious days are printed on the calendar, and leave a large blank for memorization.
As for the monthly calendar later developed into various forms such as wall calendar and desk calendar, it is only a matter of nearly a century. The style of the desk calendar has changed from the original simple style to many variants. In recent years, the market economy and the popularization and development of the Internet have driven exchanges between different cultures. Of course, desk calendars are among them. The most common is that desk calendars have tended to be more. Smaller and more refined.
