The title says it all. If you had the possibility to skip one month every year in the place where you live, and jump directly to the next one, which one would it be ?

Personally, my answer depends on the place, as I've lived in several places:

In Nice, it would be November. It's not the coldest but it's the cloudiest along with December, and December has several advantages such as Christmas and New Year celebrations which make it more enjoyable. Plus, stricly weatherwise, days start to grow longer in December after the winter solstice so it makes me feel we're headed "in the good direction". November is just a hopeless boring month with short and decreasing daylight.

In Singapore, November as well because it's as cloudy and almost as rainy as December, but the latter has the aforementioned celebrations, and later sunset times.

In Paris and Lille, still November. Short days, overcast skies, cool temperatures (but not cold enough for snow) makes it a unbelievably dull month.

In Hong Kong, it would be February - the cloudiest and almost the coldest month in the year (January is only marginally cooler and much sunnier). Second place goes to March which is equally dull but can get significantly warmer so it's a little better.

July - Too hot, sunny, and the days are too long. Blah.

August is pretty much the same, but the days get noticeably shorter and a cool down is more likely.

Here, February.

I like December because of Christmas etc... even though it is gloomy and cold.

January is the coldest month but February is barely any better and I've had enough of winter by then, it just seems to drag on. Let's get rid of it.

August. It's always a dismal month here, even in good summers. I would love to skip it and go straight to September which is always better.

August probably, it'd be cool to have the heat of July turn into a quickly cooling off September.

May. Still weeks until the shortest day, leaves all over the place, and rats try to invade the house most years during May. We don't have much seasonal variation in sunshine percentages, so at least it doesn't feel worse in that regard. The only thing I like about May, is some of the best surf conditions happen then, although my work schedule gets messed up as a result.

March. The transition from winter to spring is way too long. This month is sad because there no longer chances for decent cold and lasting snow. And it's the driest part of the year, usually even more boring than the rest of the year in Paris. Last but not least, it's the beginning of the allergy season.
