I love winter, I live for winter. I don't mind spring as it is cooler with some sunshine but I am ultimately in my element during winter.
The cooking, the scarves, the coats, the comfort.....winter is my favourite time of year!
I cannot wait to do some decent winter cooking.

Yes, for all the same reasons as you OP. Living in Perth during summer does that to you.

I love winter! Added bonus this year is we're having a baby in June (again!)
I love that it gets dark early, and wearing a scarf & the fog in the mornings. Having the heater on, hot showers, frost in the mornings.
I love wearing slippers & trackies all day, and eating soup & casserole. Can't wait!
I was also very glad we didn't have a 'proper' summer this year - I hate it!

absolutely wanting winter to start, actually you can feel that Autumn is in the air now at night (in NSW) which is great.
Love winter because no matter how cold you are if you put on enough clothes/hats/woollen socks/gloves, you can always get warm, but in summer, no matter how many clothes you take off you can never get cool enough.

I sure am although... I really need to drop some kilos before winter hits so I can fit into my winter clothes otherwise there will be some depressing expensive shopping trips

Nope. I hate the cold, but even more than that, I hate the long nights and short days. There are some nice things about winter, but the cold and darkness outweigh all of them put together. I think I have a mild form of SAD.
Having said that, I don't cope well with really hot weather, either. Even so, the longer days in summer make up for it. Mid-spring, when the days are noticeably getting longer and a bit warmer, is my favourite time of year.

I cannot wait until winter, the heat has knocked me around especially with this pregnancy
I'm on the Gold Coast btw..

I actually find the last few years I am getting really down and grumpy in summer. I find the heat so oppressive and I am always cranky from being hot. I think I get the opposite from those who get depression in winter - I am finding summer is bringing it on for me.
I always look forward to winter, usually from the middle of November onwards.
I hear you!

I do enjoy the cooler weather usually. But I'm actually still waiting for summer.
