I don't think that seasons play a role in enough niches where something like that might be part of the algorithm. I've acquired high quality relevant links out of season with no problems. It wouldn't surprise me if someone else posted that their experience is different.
Something like that is hard to pin down. But I think the consensus that's building over the last few months is that the industry has been overestimating Google's algorithm.
