Persephone is a character of Greek Mythology. Her mother is Mother Nature. Persephone was kidnapped by Hades, the Lord of the Underworld, to keep her with him underground out of love for her. After negotiations, Hades accepted to let Persephone out in the spring, summer, fall, but in the winter she would go back to him. In the winter, when Persephone is underground, Mother Nature covers everything with snow and ice to perserve the beauty of nature that Persephone will awaken upon her return in the spring.
