Winter is the coldest season of the year in polar climates and temperate climates, between autumn and spring.
Winter 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 despite the cold I find Winter to be a beautiful time of the year.
