Question:

Does winter or fall come first?

Answer:

Fall comes first, followed by winter, spring, and summer. The Earth's axis is tilted, and that is what gives us the 4 seasons. Since the Earth's axis is tilted, different parts of the globe are oriented towards the Sun at different times of the year.
