Do long winters occur on both Westeros and Essos?

Game of Thrones: I haven't read the book, but I've been watching the HBO t.v. series. Do the long winters occur only on the Westeros continent? Or is it assumed that the long winters impact both Essos and Westeros, and/or is the result of some global phenomenon?

In the HBO series, many characters from the Westeros continent have mentioned the long winters and their impact. However, I've noticed that no one from the Essos continent seemed to be concerned about the winters. This has lead me to believe that the long winters occur on only the Westeros continent. Is it true? Do the people of Essos experience somewhat more regular seasons?
