Well, with 364 days that means there's 1.25 days pushed into the buffer every year. That means that the buffer would be full (mathematically) every 5.6 years hence the "every five or six years." In order to keep general season alignment, I figure they vary between the two. This decimal doesn't go away until after 28 years - so I assume some combination of fives and sixes that add up to 28. Lets say three sixes and two fives. (18+10). So in order to make any pattern they might do something like 6 5 6 5 6 6 5 6 5 6. And now, looking at the leap years, I think my theory is confirmed: 2015-2020 (5) 2020-2026 (6) 2026-2032 (6) 2032-2037 (5) 2037-2043 (6) 2043-2048 (5) 2048-2054 (6) 2054-2060 (6)
