I don't know about anybody else but mine definitely does. People in general are known to gain weight during the winter
I don't have any scientific research behind this but I would say that there are three reasons.
1. Family can be stimulating either by stress or by happiness
(especially if you are an emotional eater like myself)
2. Your body has to work harder to keep your body at comfortable temperature.
3. And of course because during the winter we have lots more holidays that are always filled with goodies and treats that stimulate are stomach enzymes.
All mammals do. Some get really fat and hibernate. It is self-preservation. Before modern man figured out how to store food, we had to fatten up while food was available. During the winter, food was scarce. Even though we now have food all year 'round, the urge to eat is in our genes.
It's because your body burns more calories in cold weather. As you get colder, your body will turn up the furnace to keep your body temperature at the proper level - it does this by burning calories. The more you burn, the more food you will need.
