What is the lunar calendar used for?

Some cultures use lunar calendars, which are based on the timing of the moon's orbit of the Earth, rather than solar calendars, which are based on the Earth's orbit of the sun. One lunar calendar in use today is the Islamic calendar, the Hijra. Some calendars, like the Hebrew calendar, are luni-solar, a cross between the lunar calendar and the solar calendar. They have months that begin at the time of the new moon, but they also have leap months added every few years to keep pace with the solar cycle. Regarding what they're used for, the primary purpose today is to know the time of traditional, especially religious, feasts and other observances. Lunar calendars in everyday use today is rare since the invention of electric lighting, yet might still be handy to some hunters, fishermen, or lunologists.
