A 24-year-old female asked:
Is it normal or common to have pneumonia every year during the cold or allergy season in a child and/or adult? does this mean they have asthma?

No: It is neither normal nor common, are these pneumonias diagnosed by cxr or just clinically? I would evaluate the immune system of the individuals, consult an allergist/immunologist.
