NEED BATTERIES, Father Fred: Reason for the season...hmmm...Earth is on a tilted axis revolving around the Sun in one loop per year. Summer happens in the hemisphere tilted towards the Sun, and winter happens in the hemisphere tilted away from the Sun.
The hemisphere that is tilted towards the Sun is warmer because sunlight travels more directly to the Earth. So, if it's Winter in the Northern Hemishpere, then it's Summer in the Southern Hemisphere. Will that do?
Anyway...welcome to the forum :-)
