I'm Bored

Here's something that no one, I don't even think my mom, knows about me.
I'm really interested in Greek Mythology.

Zeus is the king of the gods, the ruler of Mount Olympus and the god of the sky and thunder.

Hera was the WIFE AND OLDER SISTER*WTH?! WTF?!* of Zeus. Hera is the Goddess of Childbirth and Marriage.

Demeter was, basically, Mother Nature.
Persephone, Demeter's daughter, was the Spring Maiden. She was taken when Hades, god of the Underworld, asked Zeus to marry her. Zeus agreed.
As you can probably guess, Demeter was "ticked off" and stopped doing what she usually did.

When Hermes, the messenger god, went to get Persephone, Hades fed her a pomegranate. She ate seven seeds, so, seven months of the year, she's in the Underworld. And that's what, supposedly, causes winter.
No crops.... You feel me?
