Gotta be February since it has the most Hallmarky holidays in it.

As a percentage of days in the month.

December. It's the darkest month, it's cold, and I have tons of extra stuff I have to do and money I have to spend.

When living anywhere with winter, spring was always the worst. Which month that translated to depended on geography, but typically March or April.

Now that I'm in Florida, August is the worst. Hot as hell (now that I'm acclimated it isn't as bad as I would have thought, but it's still limiting), very short sunsets, and the manifold miseries of school starting again.

The Romans were very practical. They considered February to be back luck, so they made it as short as possible.

I will go with February out of these two.

It's going to be cold, it's going to be dark and it's going to last you for the rest of your lives!

Janbruary by far the worst time of year in Chicago. January gets the edge for NFL playoffs and MLK day. February just depressing.

Definitely March or April. Still kinda cold. More rainy than other months. Allergies start coming out. Just muddy and gross.
