CRAP !!
While it seems counterintuitive, Earth is actually closest to the sun in
December, even though winter solstice is the shortest day of the year.-
The seasons are caused as the Earth, tilted on its axis, travels in a loop
around the Sun each year. Summer happens in the hemisphere tilted towards
the Sun, and winter happens in the hemisphere tilted away from the Sun. ...
The poles remain cool because they are never tilted in a direct path of
sunlight
