so.. anyone else feel more alive every December, than other months?

I particularly like December. Regrettably, there's no Winter season from where I'm at, so usually I would binge on those cliche Christmas movies and online streaming christmas specials.
I guess my love for anything December, Winter, and Christmas stems from all the Christmas media I've encountered from young. Also, it was also during that month where everyone will be at home most of the time. And of course, get to stay up /late/

Given the past two months of 'soft' lockdown, whenever I go to the nearest 7-11 and back during the late hours, the atmosphere kinda like the quiet and still December/Winter nights... sans the cold temperture and snow.

How was it for you, last December?
Do you look forward to, or have anything planned for this year end?

Pic related is basically where I live, somewhere in Canada.

I prefer the summer, maybe because it's so fleeting. I like being able to sit with the window open or go for a walk in shorts and a t-shirt in the middle of the night, and we only get couple months of this. Then it's the long dark and the deepfreeze again until May. Days in December are about eight hours long, and you can easily go to work in the dark and go back home in the dark, which becomes like cabin fever without even the benefit of seclusion. Snow blindness and glare from the sun coursing across the horizon is annoying and dangerous. At sunset, runoff from the snow mounds turns the sidewalks into sheets of ice. It's hard to mitigate the hazard of ice completely.

On the other hand, there's something satisfying about being fully tanked up: overcoat, hood, thick pants, scarf, gloves, and boots. It's like in a game when your armor class is so high you can just stand there and let the enemies hit you. Some nights it'll be a couple degrees below the freezing point, and the wind is calm, and it's snowing gently in big clumps that scatter the streetlight into a pervading, golden ambience. On a long outing I might notice that the wind has died down and pull my hood back because I'm actually too hot, and the air is crisp and refreshing. Some things are nice to look at, like a frozen lake. Miles of pure, perfectly level, untrammeled snow. Also, running through a field when there's a foot of snow on the ground is the best cardio there is.
July is midwinter here, so I'm right in the middle of it.
No heater, but it doesn't get that cold so it's /comfy/ with layers on.

>>1501 October is my favorite month of the year, and Halloween is my favorite day. Needless to say I'm excited.
I always feel like after summer starts, I get sick of it. Then the rest of the year is the road to winter break, especially when the school year would start. I've had dreams that make me feel like Christmas and New Year's would be heaven, and I especially enjoyed both last year.
>>1536 Only two more months and we've arrived! Hell, Nov is close enough to get me excited! Though the past 4 or 5 Christmases I really haven't done much at all. No family, no presents, just alone. Why is it still exciting? I love it! I love you!
weather's getting slightly more cooling now. I hope it will stay this way all through Jan 2021 Christmas displays are slowly going up in the city/malls area. Can't wait for Christmas to come.

My favorite time of year is late spring and early summer. I don't really like winter other than Christmas, although I can definitely appreciate the beauty of hoarfrost-covered trees, freshly fallen snow, and the blindingly sunny days that occasionally happen in my area. Late August through fall I just find to be dreary and depressing for whatever reason. I think I'd honestly prefer a climate that was warm year-round than a standard temperate one, although Christmas wouldn't feel like Christmas. Unfortunately, I feel like I've been less able to get into the Christmas mood the older I get.

>>1067 something do beautiful about winter...
Happy December 1st! >>1074 >I might notice that the wind has died down and pull my hood back because I'm actually too hot, and the air is crisp and refreshing. I've been consciously enjoying this in particular now that it's chilly out. A t-shirt+thick hoodie and some thin gloves prove to be very comfy gear for running around when it's just above freezing.
>>1864 Happy 1st of December, Christmas coming soon.
>>1864 >>1871 Happy Dec. 1st! My family celebrates Advent every year, so sitting down and starting that tradition is always something to look forward to.
>>1871 >>1875 Happy Last Month of the Year! With air travel being stifled, many of friends here will have make do with rediscovering local attractions, instead of enjoying a trip up to the more wintery and snowy countries.
happy december, fellas. last leg of the journey, cant falter now. just three weeks to chrstmas, have you set up your decorations?
>>1900 I keep thinking I should do that, but then I'm busy all day and the fam is tired at night.
>>1900 Yup, me and my flatmates have put some colored lights, a christmas tree with some decoration on it. It's one of these moments that make appreciate being with this guys. I have the chance to have flatmates who care about our common house life.
this season's been a real drag so far but christmas still lifts my spirits since i remember all the good times i had when i was younger
