@lawlya: Chinese year would definitely work! The only problem here is that apparently according to the quotes above, there really are only about a week and a half worth of days between Safu's kidnapping and the Holy Celebration Day... no matter how we call the months. So still less time for the boys in the West Block together.

But your idea is very sound - Japanese (and I'm fairly sure Chinese and other languages) doesn't name the months like in English, so December is literally just '12th month'. No. 6's December could be 'our' February by that reasoning, as long as it's the 12th month of the year. And then it's like you suggested, Holy Celebration Day would be the start of their New Year! So then Holy Celebration Day for spring of 2017 would definitely be true. (Especially since historically, Japan has used a lunar calendar like China, so the first month back then doesn't add up to January now: see also wiki.)


That... still doesn't quite explain how it was described as autumn when Shion escaped to the West Block and spring when they came out of the Facility, but okay. XD; Dang it they had six months together! Six months I say! It's short enough as it is.
