If you mean waiting as why in a year and a day? Well i say that the Green KNight wanted to test Gawain to see if Gawain would fail as being a noble knight. As we know the one behind the whole plot was Queen Morguase or Morgan le Fay something like that. Well it was all intetiatly for King Arthur but her knowing that Gawain will stand for him she did it. She wanted  for them to fail and to proove that at some point we all fail. Thats why the Host got his wife to tempt him by making him fall in love with her even though he knew it was bad.
