1985 is one of the few years where Vietnamese and Chinese calendars differ significantly: the Vietnamese New Year was 1 month earlier than the Chinese one. The reason can be detected from the above table. The Winter Solstice 1984 falls on 21/12/1984 Hanoi time, but on 22/12/1984 Beijing time, the same day as the New Moon. The month 11 of the Chinese year must contain the Winter Solstice, so it is not the month from 23/11/1984 to 21/12/1984 like in the Vietnamese calendar, but the one starting 22/12/1984. Consequently, the subsequent months (12, 1,...) also start about one month later than the corresponding months of the Vietnamese calendar. While New Year in Vietnam falls on 21/01/1985, it is on 20/02/1985 in China. The two calendars agree again after a leap month is inserted to the Vietnamese calendar (month from 21/03/1985 to 19/04/1985, as seen above). Also, in year 1984 the Chinese lunar month from 23/11/1984 to 21/12/1984 is the first lunar month after Winter Solstice 1983 that does not contain a Major Term and is therefore a leap month.
In the 21th century there are 3 years where the Lunar New Year begins at different dates in Vietnam and in China. In 2007 the Vietnamese New Year is on 17/02/2007, the Chinese one on 18/02/2007. In 2030 the dates are 02/02/2030 and 03/02/2030, and in 2053 they are 18/02/2053 and 19/02/2053.
