Winter Facts: 10 Things you didn’t know about Winter.

1. Earth is closest to the sun in December.

In the northern hemisphere, we are closest to the Sun in December. How does that make sense?
Earth’s elliptical orbit causes it to be slightly closer to the sun in December. However the elliptical orbit has nothing to do with seasons.
Seasons are caused by the tilt in the earth’s axis, which has nothing to do with it’s orbit.
