Dawn at 6am, dusk at 4pm.
I prefer the early dark of winter, sundown at 5pm.

I don't prefer it, but there is a lot to like about the change of seasons: lighting the wood stove, eating heartier stews, lighting candles, the crisp fall air. It's also fun to sit down with a cocktail at 5 or 5.30 with the sky darkening and laugh at y'all bitches' shade.

You do just throw convention to the wind, don't you OP

I like long days but R1 has a positive, poetic description of the shorter. A glass half full person and probably good to be around.

I don't mind it as long as there is snow to lighten up the darkness. Unfortunately it doesn't snow anymore here where I live, which is south-eastern Norway. It just rains all the time. It's very gloomy and depressing and sad. I miss the snow. But this is the new normal. It's global warming. Soon only northern Norway and the mountains will have snow.

I'm guessing by now you've all received your invitations to R1's hyggekrog party tomorrow night?
You [italic]were[/italic] invited, weren't you?

I live in Chicago, have for much of my life, and I can’t take the gray skies anymore, I have chronic depression. But OP, for those not struggling with depression, I think your embracing of the seasons is beautiful, because the changing is wonderful and should be savored.

I love the change of seasons, but wood stoves and wood fires are out. I smelled too much smoke this summer to ever enjoy again dousing myself with particulates and benzene.

Have you noticed how some of the more unpleasant posters sign with some unfunny pseudonym? I'm seeing a definite decline in WW on this site. Trump fatigue drive away all the best posters? I used to laugh a lot, but no more.

I like winter in the mountains where sunny days are common, but city life in winter is dreary and dark.

I like the dark sky in the morning, but don’t like the afternoon dusk and darkness.

R18, in their defense, we are living through a pandemic and a constitutional crisis. But yes, I miss the warmer, fuzzier DL. I think it will come back, it goes through cycles, and every election year is like this here, though this is the worst year for sure

Pennsylvania guy here. I like the change. I don't mind it being dark at 5:00. It makes me feel like it's okay to just chill in our cozy house rather than feel like I have to be out "doing" something.

Who the hell is "out" doing anything during a pandemic?

R23 Raking leaves, taking a walk, grocery shopping (w/mask)...I'm out for a few hours every day. Maybe you should consider getting out a bit.

I agree with OP. There is something relaxing about being able to turn off the world at 5 and relax, as I am doing, with soft jazz, a good book and/or DL.
