Haha, I think the focus is more on the "common" than on the "cold".

It's called the common cold because the amount of people getting it usually spikes during the winter. This is often because people stay indoors a lot more and therefore increase their risk of being exposed to the virus.

That's correct. It's a common misconception that people are sick due to cold air. People are getting sick while it's cold outside, but what's causing the illness is in most cases a virus or bacteria which live inside your warm flat together with you Smile
Since most people close the windows of their home and limit the ventilation, they are increase their chance of getting sick.

Obviously hypothermia is bad, but ventilating the room from time to time won't cause it and it'll also help with the viruses.
