Winter

Winter is the season between Spring and Fall. In my opinion Winter is beautiful, but cold. Winter is The astronomical winter (Northern Hemisphere) 2014 begins on Sunday, December 21st, and ends on Thursday, March 19th.

What causes Winter?

Winter in either the Northern Hemisphere or the Southern Hemisphere is caused by the axis of the Earth in that hemisphere being oriented away from the Sun. Different cultures define different dates as the start of winter, and some use a definition based on weather, but when it is winter in the Northern Hemisphere it is summer in the Southern Hemisphere, and vice versa. In many regions, winter is associated with snow and freezing temperatures.
