The short days, long nights, cold and rainy weather, snow and blizzards for some parts of the world, and last but not least the flu.

I love it. It´s my favorite season. I find the extreme heat of summer unbearable.

I love winter, especially when everything is covered in snow. It just makes everything look peaceful and I love how everything gets quiet.

I don't mind winter, but I hate when the temperature gets below zero, and I hate snow. I really like rain and when the temperature is just above freezing level though.

Since I do a lot of my work outdoors in the open and often at night, I hate winter. Part of my work takes place in heated offices or the hangar, but it is totally unpredictable. So either I´m dressed to warm for inside or not warm enough for outside. Also, airport ramps are usually very windy places.

I have been to the tropics and I prefer tropical climate at any time.

I like winter when everything is covered in snow and skies are sunny and mostly clear, but then more warm winter time with raining water & clear dark ground is just depressing.

Snow just makes environment look way more bright and beautiful.

summer > spring > snowy winter > fall > warm watery winter.

   Exactly. This is what I call 'real winter' - freezing, lots of snow, and some sun on occasion.

The idiotic winter in the UK is just annoying. +1 to +10 most of the time and very damp. It sucks.

When I was living in cities like Hamburg or Berlin, I used to hate winter. For the past five years, I have been living south of Munich within walking distance to the country side, where snow is (and actually stays as) something fluffy and white that is calming to look at. So winter has grown on me. And it seems that a daily dose of 1,000 to 2,000 i.u. of vitamin D help to battle my winter depression.



It is still my least favourite season, though.

I like the cold (the kind we have around Paris, never experienced a very cold winter outside of a week at a very high alpine ski resort).

When you're cold you put a pullover or a plaid on and you're warm, might even light a fire if you have a fireplace. When you're hot there is nothing to do.

Then there is the weather, I don't mind rain or snow but not seeing the sun for weeks at a time is really annoying. A good incentive to become an instrument rated pilot !

And finally the short days, I find that horrible and am terribly tired during winter because of that.

Winter has character, I have grown to prefer it over summer, how tastes change, infact come to think of it the change came with a kind of spiritual awakening long time back, since then I feel more in tune with winter, its like the two gel together.

Like quite a few here, it's my favorite. I love the snow.

Also - in cold you can add layers, whereas in heat there is only so much you can take off before society labels you indecent

I hate it.

The lack of sun, daylight, the cold, the rain, it's depressing. There's nothing good or enjoyable about it, except maybe for the occasional snow and winter sports.

I'd say sleeping in bed under a thick blanket is nice, but it's completely written off by the absolute torture of having to get out of it in the morning.

I'd go back to living between the tropics if I could. Or 30° latitude, tops.

In Massachusetts, winter is my least favorite season.

I'm in Miami so yes it is AWESOME  at the same time when I was in D.C. and when I travel because cold and dark winters were not the norm for me and now still are no longer the norm I enjoy them when I get the chance to get into some cold winters or shorter days.

I dislike parts of the winter, but overall I love it. I'm allergic to bees and it's the only time of year I don't have to consciously remember to take my Epi-Pen with me whenever I go outside (even to check the mailbox).

I would like it more if it only lasted a month. After a month or two I'm sick of the below-freezing temperatures.

I hate the winter darkness, not much day light up here in mid winter. I use a daylight lamp in the morning, helps a lot. Snow is nice and I don't mind the cold, as long as it's warm inside.

I can understand that problem. I would not like that myself. I always appreciate the longer days here as the Winter progress's.

Do I like winter ?

Oh yeah, I really LOVE winter ! Like, the inch of snow we got yesterday, and after I had the sidewalk all swept off out to the car, the other inch and a half we got today.........and the wife wanting to go to the "Follies" at the old theater up in Rockville tonight with her lady friend, Carol; sure, I love the wintertime; I even swept the sidewalk off again and helped her out to Carol's car ! ( Not that I'm gonna get mine out and slip and slide around, when I can sit here and watch the fire place burn, listen to Mike Huckabee on Fox News, and lie to everyone on Non-Av about how much I LOVE this good ole winter weather ! ( I gotta keep an eye on the drive way though; she'll be coming back home after while, and I gotta run out and help her back into the house so she doesn't slip on the snow and hurt her butt falling down on the slick sidewalk.)

Another thing I really like about the winter time, is because I'm so "needed"; when I'm still trying to sleep in the morning, and all red the birds out back are pecking on the back window in the family room, trying to wake me up so I can fill the feeder back up with sunflower seeds so they can eat "breakfast"; then Steamer and Blackie (who got to sleep in the laundry room last night cause it got down to 10 "above" outside,) are trying to get me to come and let them back outside, all while the cats are meowing to get their cat food filled up, and while I'm doing that, Miss Arlie needs another carton of 2.25% down from the stack up near the ceiling; maybe when I get that done I can run back outside and empty the cat-liter bucket in the dumpster and bring in some more fire wood from the wood shed out back ? While I'm out by the wood shed the squirrel that lives in the hole in the big beech tree will be wanting me to get a couple ears of corn out of the corn crib, and while i'm doing that I'd better hurry, cause if I don't, Peabody will probably wake up and pee on the linoleum before I can get back inside and let HIM outside to "go". Yes siree, I realy love the wintertime ! (gives me something "to do" !)

I hate winter with passion. Love the long days and heat of summer. I can take advantage of my backyard and the pool. Now, in winter, I'm just confined to the house. If I could, I'd do the snowbird thing. Sometimes I seriously think about applying for transfer to our JAX plant.
