Hades captured Persephone, who's mother is Demeter, goddess of the harvest. So while Persephone was gone, Demeter would grieve and there would be winter and when she came back, she was happy and there would be spring.

The actual story is much longer, but I don't feel like typing it up. So maybe you should try OPENING A BOOK!!
