It's because of Earth's 23.5 degree tilt of it's axis. As Earth orbits around the Sun, the southern hemisphere receives more direct sunlight in December, thus making the temperature warmer. But in the northern hemisphere, the northern continents are tilted away from direct sunlight, thus making it colder in December.
Why are the cold poles of the northern hemisphere centered in N Canada and in Siberia while only one exists in the southern hemisphere over Antarctica?
Winter is cold because that area of the Earth is the furthest from the Sun and thereby devoid of its energy and warmth. The earth is on a tilted axis. As the earth revolves around the sun the tilt of the axis varies in its position in relation to the sun. The hemisphere that is positioned in the tilt away from the sun will experience winter. As the northern hemisphere is tilted away the southern…
