and the cycle of life and death. Demeter's daughter Persephone was abducted to the underworld by Hades. With her loss and her grief, the seasons halted; living things ceased their growth, then began to die. Faced with the extinction of all life on earth, Zeus sent his

messenger Hermes to the underworld to bring Persephone back. Hades agreed to release her if she had eaten nothing while in his realm; but Persephone had eaten a small number of pomegranate seeds. This bound her to Hades and the underworld for certain months of every year. To

the Greek, this period of time is tied to the winter, when plants cease to grow due to Demeters pain of being apart from her daughter. Symbols: Cornucopia wheat bread honey, cats and dogs
