It can even be simpler than that. Switching themes entirely based on
some set of conditions is easy.

function date_switch_theme($theme) {
	$month = date('n');
	if ($month >= 1 && $month <= 4) return 'themename-1';
	if ($month >= 5 && $month <= 8) return 'themename-2';
	if ($month >= 9 && $month <= 12) return 'themename-3';
	return $theme; // shouldn't happen

Obviously, you'll want to manually activate these themes and configure
them individually before using code like this to switch between them.
