That would be Persephone and Hades. Hades stole Persephone and her mother Demter demanded to have her back. Zeus ordered Hades to give her back, so he came up with a plan. When he released Persephone but gave her twelve pomegranate seeds. She ate six of them on her way back and anyone, even a god, must stay in the Underworld if they eat Underworld food. Because she ate six she had to stay in the Underworld for six months at a time, and Demeter (goddess of agriculture) is sad when she\'s gone so she causes crops to wither. (This explains winter/summer)
