Winter is right around the corner, and it’s no secret that this season of short days and long nights (and let’s not forget the cold weather!) causes some to feel the winter blues.

As we gear up for another wet, gray Pacific Northwest winter, we want to know: How do you stay sane and keep your spirits up during the rainy months? Do you try to live with friluftsliv in mind? Is there a certain activity you do that keeps you moving until the warmer months, or a tried-and-true method to lengthen those short days? Tell us!


The coldest months of the year have arrived. Whether you’re staying cozy indoors or heading out to enjoy the festivities of the region, here’s our guide to Seattle-area movies, performances, light displays, concerts and more this winter.
