Hi Guys! I have a program here that generates the zodiac sign and chinese zodiac, but there is a problem. When you enter a month - 13 or higher it generates a result.
What should I do to fix this problem?
Here are my codes:

Try entering a date, eg 13/14/2015 and getting it printed out. You will probably get 14th Jan 2016. What is probably happening is that the Calendar object is accepting 13 as one month beyond December. Read the Calendar documentation about “leniency”; that may help sort out your problem.

I think Campbell's basically covered it.

However: Are you familiar with enums? Because both of your "zodiac" types would be a great place to use them.
