The answer is:


We get it by:

Unscramble all the words inside the shapes. Take from each word the letter corresponding to the number of sides of each shape. From this we get yttrium, bromine, uranium, iron, argon. Take the symbols of each of these elements, and anagram. We get February.

More specifically:

The unscrambled words are:
flying, cortex, skeptic, dessert, driven, future, ligament
arbitrary, fearless, ballon (intended to be balloon?), academy, initial, transcend, achieve
equator, encrypt, solvable, talking, fridge, figure, pandemic
science, boarder, tinfoil, patience
plants, overtime, telegram, hexagon, runner
The shapes form a pattern 3, 4, 5, 6, 3, 4, 5
Taking the corresponding letters from each word, we get
u-r-a-n-i-u-e (intended to be 'm', I assume)
The symbols of these elements are, in order, Y-Br-U-Fe-Ar.
We can anagram this to get 'February'. This relates to the puzzle title, because we sometimes add a day to February.
