Darkness does not mean hibernation
Alessandro, you asked what people do when it is dark. Well, we just perform as we would normally do. Naturally lack of light does have an effect, and we do miss the sun, that is for sure.
But in the other hand the darkness does make you turn some what inwards, that is to say, we do read and contemplate more than we would in the summer time. As I have lived in Finland most of the time; I am not able to explain it better. All and all we just go about with our lives as normal as possible.
Have a good kaamos!
