It is not about bacteria, but about influenza virus. The predominant influenza virus circulating during the winter is the influenza A. Because influenza viruses change over time through mutations, people get sick with new season.

Hmm.. I always blame our varying weather whenever someone here gets a cold.. Now that you mentioned it, though, it makes me think too. I think it has something to do with the body re-adapting again - you know, adapting to the sudden heat or the sudden cold?
