Depending on where you live the sun will set at different places on the horizon. The earth rotates on it axis with a wobble. This creates a change in the sunlight's "angle of incidence."

NO, IT DOES NOT! Not to any visible degree! What ever happened to middle-school science??

This creates a change in the sunlight's "angle of incidence." December in the southern US the sun will be rising more to the southeast and setting more to in the southwest. In the summer it will be the opposite rising more to the northeast and setting more to the north east. I think the degrees of difference is around 12 degrees.

NO! Earth's tilt to the ecliptic is some 23 degrees and the seasons are caused by which side of the sun it's on in orbit!
