"Christmas for me doesn't come from a store..."
Winter brings a lot of work, but at the same time, it is a different pace than during the summer. It isn't a urgent, the timelines are not as important. What doesn't get done today will get done tomorrow, or perhaps next week. It offers a break from the stress of growing crops and although the weather still plays a part in what gets done in the run of a day, it doesn't have the impact it does in the summer.
