In brief: SAD

Seasonal affective disorder (also called sad) is a type of depression that occurs at the same time every year. If you're like most people with seasonal affective disorder, your symptoms start in the fall and may continue into the winter months, sapping your energy and making you feel moody.
Less often, seasonal affective disorder causes depression in the spring or early summer.

Not much of a problem when the sun is shinning and its warm, when activities abound.
