Winter, but only by a tiny bit. I'm nearly always sick, no matter what the weather now.

Winter. I get more coughs and colds, and thinking about it I seem to get tonsilitis more in the winter.

It seems I get my worst illnesses in the summer - strep throat, tonsilitis, sinus infections, etc. all happen in the summer. Luckily, it's rare for me to get sick, especially in the summer, but when I do, it's extra awful.
In the winter, I tend to just get colds more than anything. They're -slightly- more frequent, but I still stay pretty healthy most of the time.

I voted other, because any change in the weather generally makes me congested. It's usually worse in the summer, more pollen, but I don't really get sick that often. Just...allergies. It isn't too terrible.

Both. I get hay fever in the summer so that's annoying and I seem to get colds in the winter

Although I sometimes feel icky I don't often get SICK sick, as in having to stay in bed for three days sick, very often at all, but I do get loads of colds and snuffles, pretty much all year round. I'd say it's worst in winter though. I had a horrrrrible cough last winter that lasted over a month.

I suffer from hayfever in the summer but I don't class that as "sick".
In the winter I get every cold and flu going around and cold sores so I voted winter.

I didn't vote because I normally don't get sick, however, when I do, I'm knocked sideways for a few days.

I voted winter. Last time I got sick, sick it was during the winter and every year I get an epic cold or flu or SOMETHING. But during the summer, nine times out of ten, I'm completely fine.

In the UK - winter. But when I lived in Russia, the deep cold of Russian winters mostly keep the bugs killed off except for cold viruses and flu, so summertime was the worst for me.

I generally don't get sick. Sometimes I get allergies during the spring. Last year I ended up getting H1N1 because my entire high school ended up having it. That was in the winter time. I did get the flu one summer. I probably can count all the times I've really been "sick, sick" on one hand.

I chose 'other' because I'm never sick. If I do, it would probably be in the Spring.

I'm pretty much even. I've somehow managed to have colds constantly throughout winter before and in the summer I tend to get more headaches and be dizzy a lot during the summer.
Any cold I get in the summer is always worse than in the winter though.
