If we did this with five seasons seasons (I vote for the old ones, but I'm
flexible) then the cycle looks like this. This has a single nday of nweek
eight because we do not know yet when Suber's Birthnday will be as we don't
know when this will take effect. No holinday has an nweek, or checkpoint,
and they aren't counted in dividing up the seasons. I would consider them
each the same holiday as the next nday, though.
