Becuase the temperature stays the same throughout the year.

#Edit; The Equator has two winters per year. One when the Sun is over the Tropic of Capricorn and the other when the Sun is over the Tropic of Cancer. It also has two Summers per year. One when the Sun appears to be moving North and the Equator is transiting the Ecliptic and the other when the Sun is apparently moving South and again the Equator is transiting the Ecliptic. Sort of, HOT ... HOTTER ... HOT ... HOTTER.

Does the seasonal cycle occurs because Earth is closer to the sun in the summer than in the winter?

The Earth rotates on it's axis. In the summer, the Earth is tilted towards the sun. In the winter, the Earth is titled away from the sun. On the Earth, the northern regions (above the equator) have winter, while the southern regions (below the equator) have summer. Then, the opposite becomes true. The southern regions have winter, while the norther regions have summer. The distance nearer and farther from the sun makes no difference as far as the Earth's summer and winter is concerned.
