Do you keep your bedroom window open all year?

    It's getting cool enough where I live now that I had to shut the bedroom window last night (temps were in the lower 40's F.) Ordinarily I like sleeping with it open so that air circulates, my wake-up call is bird songs, etc. But once fall and then winter arrive I like keeping everything cozy.
    A few - very few - hard-core athletes and "health nuts" I've known swear by keeping windows open at all times while at home unless precipitation's crazy. The colder it gets, the more layers they put on the bed. Out of all the jillions of studies out there I've never heard of one that proves it does make a difference to keep indoor/outdoor air in cross currents. I'd rather have myself and my cat (not to mention plants) warm n' toasty during the cold time of year. But do any of you guys "let the outside in" while you slumber, year-round?

    I only leave my window open at night when I feel like getting raped...

    I live in a busy city thoroughfare. I close the windows to keep the noise out.

    I keep my window open during the winter months. Not wide open, sometimes just a crack. I do like the fresh air. Have more blankets on the bed, and keep the heat in the house turned down till the morning when I get up. Sucks when you have to get up in the middle of the night to pee, the floor is cold on the feet, but other than that I love it.

    I would freeze to death if I kept the window open in the winter.
