What causes some places to have such a long winter?

    This is due to the Earth’s position and the way it travels around the sun. The Earth is tilted on an axis as it orbits. Places with longer winters have them because they are never tilted in the path of direct sunlight. Areas near the poles have periods of no sun and periods of almost no sun depending on whether they are tilted away or towards the sun, respectively. Places near the equator almost never have winters because they are in the direct path of sunlight.

    Also there are no human settlements in the inner parts of the arctic circle, where the sun will not set or rise for months at a time. Countries in Scandinavia and parts of north America experience sunlight for almost 20 out of 24 hours, now referred to as the lands of the midnight sun.
