According to Greek myth Persephone is the daughter of Head God, Zeus and Demeter (Mother Earth), Persephone is Goddess of Spring and helps Demeter tend plants.
Hades, Lord of the Underworld, was smitten with Persephone and asked Zeus for her hand. Zeus didn't consent because he feared Demeter's temper. Hades whisks Persephone away to the Underworld anyway and makes her Queen of the Underworld.
But Demeter was distraught that her daughter left and stopped tending the plants and wandered the earth looking for her. People and animals began to starve.
Demeter insisted Persephone return to her. Under pressure from Demeter, Zeus went to talk to Hades and begged that Persephone leave the underworld and help Demeter again (before everyone on earth starved to death.)
When Hades protested, Zeus exercise his power, and declared that Persephone's marriage would be void as long as she ate nothing from the Underworld's garden. Hades was sad to see Persephone go and wooed her with a pomegranate. She ate six pomegranate seeds from the garden in the underworld and that act consummated her marriage to Hades. So for 6 months out of the year she had to stay with Hades in the underworld, whom she grew to love. And for 6 months out of the year she got to stay with her mother on Earth.
Her return from the underworld marks the beginning of Spring. Because Persephone tastes the pomegranate she must return to the underworld and her husband at the end of harvest and Winter begins.
This Myth basically explains the change in seasons with a colorful tale.

I have weird likes and dislikes. I'm silly. I'm hyper. I'm ANNOYINGLY optimistic and BRUTALLY honest. Sometimes I'm sad, but most of the time I'm pretty confident. I have more guy friends than girl friends, but it's always been like that. I love Dr. Pepper. I enjoy playing the piano. I love music with a passion which can be displayed by two tattoos I have that represent music in someway. I like taking pictures. I don't like going to class, yet I like feeling accomplished. I feel like a bum when I don't have a job. I wanna be pretty and different and someone that everyone feels like they can talk to or get a hug if they need one. haha I like rambling that was fun and a good self-evaluation.
"How happy is the blameless vestal's lot!
The world forgetting, by the world forgot.
Eternal sunshine of the spotless mind!
Each pray'r accepted, and each wish resign'd. "

"There is always some madness in love. But there is also always some reason in madness."
- Friedrich Nietzsche
"Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres."
-1 Corinthians 13:4-7
"I'm loved, hated, but never ignored."
