Myth of Demeter (Ceres)

  Demeter was the Goddess of corn, harvest, vegetation and the earth. She was a daughter of Cronus and Rhea and a sister of Zeus. She was worshipped as a mother Goddess. Persephone was her daughter. When Hades, the God of the underworld, abducted Persephone, Demeter made the earth dry and desolate. All plants died. Zeus mediated between Hades and Demeter. Finally, it was agreed that each year Persephone would remain on earth with her mother eight months and four months in the underworld with Hades. Her return to earth each year made her mother happy, and so , her mother brought spring and vegetation. During Persephone’s absent her mother remained her unhappy and brought winter when nothing grew on earth.
