During night, your area of the Earth has rotated so that it is on the opposite side of the Sun *We can’t see the Sun anymore, but the Sun is still lighting up the moon.
During winter in North America, the Sun is still shining, but because of axial tilt, North America is facing away from it and not getting very much light.
Daylight hours are longer for the hemisphere that is tilted toward the Sun because that hemisphere has more exposure to light for a longer period of time
