Why does It Get Darker Faster in the Winter?

Answer

The reason that it gets dark earlier in the winter in the Northern Hemisphere is because of the earths rotation in relation to the sun. In the winter the earth is inclined away from the sun, while in the southern Hemisphere it is inclined toward the sun, so they have longer daylight while we have shorter, and then in the summer, it changes again.

1 Additional Answer
It gets darker faster in the Winter because the Earth is on an axis. During the winter months the northern hemisphere is tilted away from the sun, so as the Earth rotates it is in the dark for a longer portion of the day during the winter. Conversely in the summer it is pointing toward the sun and the hemisphere is in the light for longer portion of the day.
