    A lunar year is 12 lunations or lunar months. Definitions of lunar month vary - some calendars use full moon to full moon, others new to new. Each lunation is about 29.5 days, so a lunar year is about 354 days.

    I’m not qualified to answer this question but I’ll give my best shot. Because the moon orbits around Earth which orbits around the sun, the lunar year and an Earth year must have the same length. Don’t quote me on this though.

      That was exactly what I thought, but apparently not correct.
      Thanks for your response.
