The Earth a orbit does carry it nearer to the Sun at midwinter but As space distances go it is not very great and ifs not the reason for Winter s coldness. That is due to the 231 a degree tilt of the Earth on its Axis around which it spins As it revolves around the Sun.

In summer when the tilt of the Axis turns the Northern hemisphere toward the Sun the Sun s rays Are More direct and concentrated on a smaller area the Sun remains longer above the horizon than below in our hemisphere. After the fall Equinox when Day and night Are equal the Sun spends More time below the horizon than above the Days grow Shorter and the nights longer. In our hemisphere the tilt of the Earth on its Axis is then away from the Sun whose rays Are More slanted the same amount of Sunshine is thinned out Over a w Ider area and the rays must penetrate a greater portion of the Earth s atmosphere.
