If you get more in the mood during the winter, you're not alone. Multiple studies have shown that it's normal to feel slightly friskier during the winter. CDC data shows that more babies are born in July and August than any other months, which means people are getting busy in the winter than any other time of year. Following suit, a 2017 study published in Scientific Reports looked at Google searchers for sex-related word and phrases over the course of a decade, and they found spikes in these types of searches around the holidays. So what is it about winter? One study published in the journal Obstetrics and Gynecology found that the winter shifts in daylight length actually lead to a better environment for eggs in women, and that men produce higher-quality during this time as well (compared to during the summer.) Not to mention the colder months bring an inherent sense of closeness.
