Are there reasons for the seasons? It all starts with the sun. The sun shines on the Earth and keeps it warm.We have day and night because the Earth spins on its axis and we spend part of each day facing the sun and part of the day facing away from it.

And when you see this, you'll know the reasons for the seasons.
