The seasons are caused by the tilt of the Earth's rotational axis away or toward the sun as it travels through its year-long path around the sun.
The Earth has seasons because of the way it orbits the Sun. As we go around the Sun, certain areas will be closer to the Sun at different times. When an area is closer to the Sun, that area has summer. When an area is farther away from the Sun, that area has winter. When an area is between, but at different angles, that area has spring or fall. You can find more information here: http://www. wrh. noaa. gov/fgz/science/season. php?wfo=fgz
