When Demeter could not find her daughter she made all living things suffer and perish. Zeus decided to make Hades give Persephone back to Demeter so that the earth could survive. Before Persephone left the under world Hades gave her four pomegranate seeds, the food of the food of the dead. Persephone was returned to her mother but for four months of the year she had to stay with Hades in the underworld-4 months for the 4 seeds she had eaten.
