The 4 Seasons By John Coval
This is a Myth about how the 4 seasons came to be.
Demeter the goddess of Earth and her daughter would bring great soil to the earth. One day her daughter found a nice flower and picked it.
That flower was actually a curse from Hades the God of the under world. He came up to Demeter and her daughter and toke her.
Hades then toke her to the underworld and she ate the fruit of the underworld. That meant she could not go back up.
Zeus herd about this all and he knew because the land was all dry and sad. He sent his messenger to tell Hades he would make a deal.
The messenger told Hades that he could have Persephone for half of the year and the other half her mother could. Hades agreed.
This is what created the 4 seasons. When she was with Hades it would be winter and fall. When she was with her mother it was spring and summer.
