Why Do Days Get Shorter or Longer?

Answer

Days get longer or shorter due to the different seasons at different times of the year. These different seasons are as a result of the earth's position and its tilting with reference to the sun. When the North Pole is inclined away from the sun, the Northern Hemisphere experiences the winter season that is characterised by shorter days and when it is inclined towards the sun, the summer season is experienced resulting in longer days.
