i am not a sun lover either! despite very dark hair i have very pale skin and burn easily too, and Ive never sunbathed. etc. even if i wanted to i am too fidgetty for that,couldnt just lay there, i prefer to up doing something. I love the winter, the fires lit, decent storms, custard and stews and the wind howling! :lol:

Well I'm an Autumn girl I think. Don't like it too hot, coz you have to have all your wobbly bits on show yuk :x and can't stand sitting in the sun boring. Also love the winter but hate being cold; I really feel the cold, especially in my hands and feet. But the Autumn is just right, full of all my favourite colours as well, Being born end of summer beginning of Autumn, I've always felt a bond with this season. :D

I do not like the hottest time of the year at all, never have - fair skin, bald [slightly!] pate, a frame that doesn't suit the heat!

I recall often getting sunburnt as a kid. The Spring suits me: sunshine but not too hot, days lengthening out.

sometimes i think i need some all in one to cover myself from the sun~even the slightest bit of brightness makes me squint badly and the tiniest ray of sun burns :roll: ~but i am still proud of my 'ginger gene' :D

Ah, therein lies my problem too as, when I still had hair, it was ginger but now it is mottled grey in the beard and is going MIA on the rest of my head :) But like you, I am proud of the 'ginger gene'!

Actually, I think ginger (I prefer auburn - nice and classy) is the new blonde. Have you noticed how fashionable red hair has become lately? So many people on telly and in the street, even if they have resorted to the bottle, lol! I love it!

Wiccaman, what does MIA mean? Or will I regret asking?? :lol:

did you know us ginger folk are a real minority, i read some work on the ginger gene after seeing it discussed on that neil oliver programme 'the face of britain' and it seems that only 1-2% of the world population has red hair :shock:

I am sure i can remember reading something at some point that the gene for red hair is dying out and so many years into the future there wont be any anymore. i think it said blond/blonde would follow suit too, and at some point in Earths future all humankind will have brown/black hair. (Hmm no hallfolk at all!) I wish i could remember when/where i read it, the memory cells let me down sometimes!!

as a child my hair was true auburn- a real reddish brown, and the summer sun it would really bring out reddish glints. but as i hit puberty it darkened and is naturally very dark brown now. :-)
