We have seasons because....

1. We may be closer to the sun.

2. The earth rotates on its axis and rotates around the sun, which takes 365 days.

3. When the earth points towards the sun, it is hotter. This would cause summer and spring.

When we are faced away from the sun, it is colder. This would cause, fall and winter.
