Default Do you prefer X or Y?

Not the actual letters, dummy! Everyone knows Y is the man! Seriously, it's simple: a choice between two, which do you prefer and why? Start off with

SUMMER vs WINTER

Me, I'm a winter guy. Comes from being a nerd I guess. Whenever it was sunny my mam would be at me to go out and enjoy it but I wanted to skulk in my room, writing, reading, playing computer games or what have you. So I always felt guilty when the sun shone. Occasionally I would drag myself out just for form's sake, but I was never a big sun lover.

But when it was cold, or raining, or snowing, I had the excuse I needed to stay in my room and nobody would say anything to me. Also it just felt ... right, you know? I'd always rather be too cold than too warm. I also like the sense of peace and stillness you can get with winter; summer was always loud radios in the distance, kids playing and people fixing cars or whatever. Winter was more peaceful.

So, summer for you? Or winter? And why?

What if we like/dislike the choices equally, can we start a new comparison?

Summer for me. There's nothing quite like basking in the warmth in a nice, suburban neighborhood on a Summer day. I love the sound of lawnmowers all around and going out and playing basketball with my buds. The simplistic things give me the most joy.

Although I enjoy winter too, but not when it seemingly lasts forever like it has this year. It's 10 degrees and it's almost March

You can of course but I'd ask for this one to be given a chance first. If you are ambivalent towards the topic I'd say wait and don't post until a new one pops up. If you want to explain why you basically aren't bothered, well I guess nobody is stopping you doing that either.

Above all, winter. The extreme cold and snow does get tiring, but it's so much easier to bundle up in multiple layers to stay warm in the winter, than it is to strip nearly naked and stay cool in the hot, humid summers we get here.

I'm really longing for summer right now, so summer all the way for me atm.

(Also, summers in Norway usually don't get unbearably hot)

Same, and for the same reasons. Winter is fun the first week and then it becomes nearly unbearable.

I'm more of a fall and spring guy honestly and I absolutely hate being hot and sweaty, but after this awful snowy, frigid winter we've had here I'm voting that I prefer summer. Ask me again in August and I'd probably vote winter.

Winter in Norway sounds like one of those days where you step outside your door feeling alright, and then you get hit in the face by the sheer coldness of the cold and make a sound like you've just been punched in the stomach.

I like summer because I can wear **** all and show my curves. Winter is nice because you can cuddle up in bed and watch DVDs. I'm finally getting used to the weather in Auckland so other than the sweating and 2+ showers a day, I can manage.
