Key and Character

It always surprises me when I hear people say that different keys have a different character, like A major being joyful, G major being serious or whatever.

I've never been able to spot any difference in the mood of a piece based upon the key it's played in. Of course I hear a difference in pitch, but the difference in character that some perceive escapes me completely. To my ears, it's major or minor etc that matters, not the key. Are there people here that do hear a connection between mood and key, and if so, how does this work for you?
