We have seasons based on the way the earth is rotating. Its also based on the way the Earth's axis

is tilted and the direction the Earth is facing. In June, the northern hemisphere is tilted towards the sun and because

of this, the sunlight has a more direct path to Earth's surface and its warm outside. In the

southern hemisphere the sun has a longer path to reach the surface of the Earth so it

is colder outside.
