Scientific knowledge informs humanity that the seasons are created by the tilt of the Earth as it rotates around the Sun. Before technology permitted another perspective humanity created stories about gods and goddesses that explained why the weather changed periodically. Out of the stories came “holy days” with rituals commemorating the important dates.

schematic of Earth orbit

The equinoxes and solstices mark relative positions of the orbiting Earth that has a 23.5° axis tilt to the orbit plane, thus varying the exposure of the Northern and Southern Hemispheres and resulting in seasonal (periodic) changes. Stonehenge is an example of an ancient astronomical observatory, where the people could be assured that the sun was following its usual path.
