In the course of figuring out Cindu's leap-years (3 per 19 yrs), I had to
come up with names for the leap-days.  One thing that's necessary (and I
haven't figured out) is that the equinoxes/solstices are supposed always to
fall on the 1st day of the 1st - 5th - 9th - 13th month (of l6). I assume
that on occasions, it will be the solstice/equinox day that is a little out
of whack, consequently the extra day is inserted just before the 1st of
those months, and it is called _lecele_ 'waiting day'.  Otherwise the extra
day is inserted mid-month somewhere (giving a two day "weekend") and is
called _lekrandam_ 'dancing day'-- why, I don't know, but it seems like a
nice term.
