    Because they don't adjust for 12 lunar months

    And the solar year, the Muslim month long daytime fast for Ramadan  moves backwards 11 days a year. Big difference between daytime fasts in  summer and  winter.  No posuk to keep the time in any particular season. 

    An interesting side note: I had to  say kaddish this past year. Normally we say kaddish, lo aleinu, for a year minus a month.  But because it was a leap year with two Adars?, I stopped two months before the  yortzeit..
