Demeter is the Greek goddess of agriculture. Persephone is supposed to be her daughter. According to the Greek myth, Hades wanted to marry Persephone and take her to the underworld, making her the Goddess of the underworld. This caused Demeter such agony that she let the world start to die off. Zeus couldn't take the world being so dead, and he sent Hermes to retrieve Persephone. Hades, before releasing her, tricked her into eating 6 pomegranate seeds which forced her to return to the underworld for 6 months out of every year. While Demeter and Persephone are together the world flourishes, while they are apart, Demeter lets everything die.

In Greek mythology, Demeter is the goddess of harvest. Her daughter is Persephone. Hades is the god of the underworld and he kidnapped Persephone. To make a long story short, there was an agreement made between Hades and Demeter to share Persephone. When Persephone is with Hades, Demeter is so sad that nothing will grow and that is why winter happens.

Persephone was Demeter's daghter, so when hades kidnapped her, of course Demeter wanted her back. Eventually, the time Persephone spent with Demeter and the time with Hades was divided. When Persephone was with Hades, it was Winter. When she was with Demeter, it was Summer.

Demeter and Persephone were both goddesses of the earth. Gaia (Earth) through her daughter Rhea, who was the mother of Demeter and grandmother of Persephone.

Demeter was the Goddess of the Harvest, Persephone was her daughter. One day, while picking apples, Hades (God of the Underworld) kidnapped Persephone while Demeter wasn't looking. This made Demeter very sad, and all crops died and whatnot. When Persephone was returned to Demeter, everything began to grow and such. Demeter and Hades made a deal; Hades would have Persephone for three months, Demeter would have her another three, and six months was granted to Persephone to do what she pleased.
