In my Vietnamese family and many other friends' family, our parents & grand parents are still using Chinese/Lunar calendar to celebrate annual events, e.g. New Year holiday, family-member's death annual ceremony, etc.

I'm looking for such a calendar similarly to Google Calendar but supports event yearly reminder - indeed Google has support Chinese calendar but not the reminder (details). If you know such a tool, please share.

You can add calendar to your google calendar, after that click to the the event > copy to my calendar > edit event details > repeat yearly and add any reminders you want.

There are few of events in Vietnamese calendar so you can do this manually easily.

Finally:

  1. Click to VietNam Calendar which you can't set notification
  2. Download it as icl
  3. Create new calendar named My Vietnam Calendar
  4. Import the icl calendar you've exported.
  5. Now you have a copy of Vietnam calendar and you can set notification if you want.

Cons: You still don't have update of holidays from Vietnam Calendar, however I don't see any update for years :)

Hi nXqd, we are equal friends here on SE network :) Thanks for your idea. Can you give us some suggested Vietnamese calendar to add? –  Nam G. VU Jan 4 '11 at 2:48
    
@nXqd: Moreover, I don't want to manually manipulate the events :) since they are not few at all to me. –  Nam G. VU Jan 4 '11 at 2:52
    
I've edited my answer with new solution, you should check it. –  nXqd Jan 4 '11 at 6:20
    
@nXqd: What is the Vietnamese calendar you are talking about? There's no calendar I can't get notification of currently. –  Nam G. VU Jan 4 '11 at 14:39

@nXqd I see what you mean about Vietnamese Calendar for now ^_^ Thank you! Though, it is not related to my question about Chiness/Lunar calendar my friend... –  Nam G. VU Jan 6 '11 at 8:28

I had this same issue and I didn't see google calendar solve this so I wrote my own application for this... You can check it out at:

http://lunar-date-reminder.appspot.com/

It won't integrate with google calendar, but at least you can see when the next Western date a lunar event is and get an email reminder when it happens. I hope you find this useful....
