That is a complicated question. If you mean in northern climates where there is snow and such, then yes. People by their very nature like to be outside in the fresh air and open spaces. Being cooped up inside for long periods of time, while tolerable, can get monotonous and hard on the body. On the flip side, if you live further south where the cold is not a problem, then I would say depression isn't either.
Yes, there is seasonal depression that is triggered by shorter days and less sunlight. People in Northern areas tend to be more frequently affected as their days are substantially shorter in the winter.

Yes take it from someone who has massive depression disorder.The cold weather monthes are very painful.It seems you ache twice as much.The sun warms from the outside in if you know what I mean.

Any really good shrink will tell you that it is a black art. If you are lucky meds alone can be the answer. For some therapy helps as well. For around 50% neither does much and therapy is all there is. It depends on how one reacts to meds.
The holiday season also has the highest suicide rate. So people definitely feel depression in winter. Clinical depression isn't seasonal for most but the added stresses of the holidays can compound problems for many.
