Well, I don't think I get depressed in a serious sort of way ... you know, serious enough to need pills or something, but grey and gloomy weather makes me feel melancholy. The best remedy, I find, is uplifting music and physical activity.
No, I don't think it does for me either. Sometimes though, when enough people are all at it, like when they are Christmas shopping, it has a sort of cumulative effect and makes me feel sad. People can be such s***s to each other, just when the exact opposite is expected. Life is too short to be mean!
