In Greek religion and myth, Demeter was the goddess of harvest and fertility. Her teaching of the art of sowing and ploughing made it possible for mankind to end their wandering nomadic lifestyle. However when Hades abducted her daughter Persephone to the underworld, Demeters grief caused chaos in the land as she put off her duties in search of her daughter in vain. With intervention from Zeus, Persephone was finally able to return to Demeter for 9 out of 12 months each year. During those 3 months, Demeters earth is barren - thus is the origin of the four seasons, with Winter being the time of Demeters grief, and Spring being the return of Persephone.
