Shadows longer in winter?
At the same time of the day, are shadows longer in winter than in summer if you live in the northern hemisphere?

Longer. In the Summer time the sun is overhead (for the most part).
In the Winter time the sun is further South, so the Shadows will be longer.
It does depend on your Latitude.

The shadows are longer in the winter because the sun is farther away.

Shadows are longer in winter in the Northern hemisphere to shorter in summer at the southern hemisphere at the same time. it all happens because of angle of the sun ...

True, because the Sun's altitude above ths horizon is nor as high around the winter solstice in the northern hemisphere. The energy of sunlight is also less.
The Sun is closest to Earth Jannury 2-3 and farthest away around July 3-4.
