In brief: Strep is seasonal

Streptococcal throat infections occur more commonly in colder months/seasons.
So naturally, one will catch them more frequently in those months.

In brief: Happens

There seems to be some seaonality to strep and no lifelong immunity after infection.
Thus your scenario does happen.
