    No? explain plz. I'm not only talking about what was mentioned in the OP. I just meant depression in general. In both genders too.

    Yes. I am pretty sure people are more depressed in the winter.

    It makes sense. I am always more depressed in the winter.

    Some say that winter sadness is due to the reduced sunshine.

    And as we produce most of our vitamin D through exposing our skin to sunshine, in winter we may suffer from vitamin D deficiency.

    A nice way to remedy vitamin D deficiency is by taking cod liver oil capsules.

    And cod liver oil not only supplies vitamin D but also omega 3 which also lifts mood.

    I take three cod liver oil capsules a day. And my skin has improved. My vision has improved. My gout has gone completely. And I am happy as larry.

    And I am able to buy top quality cod liver oil capsules cheaply at Aldi.

    And the only people unhappy with all this are the cod.

    -H.W. Harper's Letters from New Zealand

    The phrase is widely used in the UK.

    There's a pub in Earls Court - The Prince of Teck - where, if I remember rightly, "larrikin" was written somewhere. It was refurbed and the stuffed kangaroo binned. Shame. The Australians always cheered me up with their antics. Quite often they'd end up fighting the South Africans. Happy as a boxer.

    Happy as Larry.

    I love the autumn, and I usually feel best during that time of year, probably because of the festivities and what-not. But when I was a kid, I used to dislike autumn. The time that I like the least is the beginning of the year - January and February mainly, lol.

    My theory is that intuitives might be less affected by seasonal depression. How can the bleak colors of winter affect me when I'm barely paying attention to them in the first place?

    People more in tune with the sensory details of environment might be more sensitive to changes in that environment. Makes sense.

    I'm merry as a lark right now as far as the weather is concerned. Autumn and winter are definitely my favorite seasons.
    I not too comfortable with summer - it's too hot (and I'm really prone to headaches), I don't like to dress casually, the nights are far too short and everyone is supposed to be cheerful and outgoing. I'm happy for the people who like that, but it's simply not what I prefer - so if there is a seasonal depression, it's most likely to be during summer in my case.
    IN SERIO FATVITAS.
