Each planet within the solar system has seasons. Earth has four seasons. Most planets

do, top. they're called winter, spring, summer and fall.

Many of them do have interesting seasonal changes. Seasons are all about axial tilt, whether the world in orbit is tilted towards or aloof from the sun. Some planets, like Mercury, have almost no tilt, so they're stuck in an everyday hellish cycle of hot and cold. the world with seasons most reminiscent of ours, unsurprisingly, is Mars, which encompasses a similar axial tilt to Earth. the skinny Martian atmosphere means the temperatures reach extreme highs and lows. However, Martian winters get cold enough to freeze CO2, creating "icecaps" that melt and refreeze through the seasons very similar to ours.

As you get further get into the solar system, the planets take see you later to rotate the sun (and even to finish a day) that the concept of seasons gets a touch wacky. But on planets like Neptune, the slow-moving seasons still change the weather, creating the large storms gas giants are known for. It just takes 40 Earth years close to to happen. Tiny Pluto's elliptical orbit brings it very near and really distant from the sun, giving it "super seasons" looking on the lean of the world. None of those alien seasons sound particularly appealing to us, accustomed as we are to our mild and short Earth seasons. But with all the exoplanets out there, it is not impossible that someday we'll discover a planet with pleasant seasons just like the ones we enjoy here.
