Cold is in the eye (skin?) of the Beholder

It's so cold here!  It's 20 degrees out!

...wait, that's 20 degrees Celcius.  (68 F)  And that's just the temperature it's falling too in the evening.  It isn't cold at all; actually, it's quite comfortable.

But most the Taiwanese people I've talked to today have said the same thing: It's so cold all of a sudden!

It's funny how much one's perception of cold changes based on where you grow up.  Do people from Alaska laugh at New Yorkers when we throw on our jackets for 40 degree weather?
