S.A.D. (SEASONAL AFFECTIVE DISORDER):

Depressive symptoms which happen during the shortened daylight period between November and February.

Is treatable with 30 minutes of light/light box therapy used in the morning. ( therapyhttps://northernlighttechnologies.com/product-category/nlt-products )

Of importance… if a person has depression throughout the year, but symptoms are worsened during November to February, then this is not seasonal affective disorder, but a common worsening of symptoms of his/her chronic depression.
