You hit me I hit You one year and a day from today.
New Years time in Camelot"The selection begins at the start of a New Year's Eve feast at King Arthur's Court in Camelot."
The Green Knight appears and proposes a game." But if you be so bold as all men believe, you will graciously grant the game that i ask by right" (50-51)
You are welcome to stay
Sir Gawain accepts to the game in place of the King." I beseech, before all here, that this melee may be mine."(115-116)
You sir have failed this game due to lying.
Sir Gawain cut off the head of the green knight in one swipe." That the shock of the sharp blow shivered the bones and cut the flesh cleanly and clove it in twain."(195-196)
Sir Gawain goes on a journey to find the Green Knight, as he does so he stays at a castle. " Then, after he prays for shelter, he comes upon a wondrous castle on Christmas Eve, where he is greeted warmly by the lord of the castle and his lady."
The Green Knight swings at Sir Gawain and tells him the truth."For that is my belt about you, that same braided girdle, my wife it was that wore it; I know well the tale, and the count of your kisses and your conduct too, and the wooing of my wife-- it was all my scheme!(448-451)
