My topic today is going to be Greek myths because I have learned it and I am watching "Olympic Champions" which is associated with them. Let's talk about a few crucial stories.
1. 12 missions Heracles had to complete
Did you know Hera was the goddess of jealousy? I only knew she was the goddess of marriage. Because Hera was jealous of mighty Heracles. So when Heracles married and had children, Hera made Heracles kill them. It's so cruel and Hera's behavior seemed a little frantic. Anyway, the 12 missions are here. Above all, capturing Kerberos. In addition, he had to eliminate a special lion, Hydra, a unique deer and bird, Cretan bulls. Next, he had to clean a dirty pen. Furthermore, he had to capture 4 horses, get golden apples, get the bend of queen of Amazon. But Heracles successfully finished the assignment and finally became a god. Even Hera stopped bothering Heracles.
2. Midas and gold
One day, Midas had an opportunity to make one of his wishes come true. He said he wanted to make everything he touched into gold. However, it made him impossible to eat anything including bread and apples. Guess why? This is because people cannot eat gold. I mean, can you eat something so hard? That is impossible.
3. Kronos gulps down his children
He killed his father to become the king of the god. Also his father Ouranos said, "One day, you will be killed by your son like I did." Hence, Kronos could not stop worrying about it when his wife had babies (pregnancy). So, he ate all his children including Hera and Heidi. But his wife wanted Zeus to stay safe, so he gave Kronos a rock instead of Zeus. And Kronos had no idea before Zeus became the king.
4. Persephone is captured
Thanks to Eros's fun, Heidi fell in love with Persephone. Her mother Demeter was so worried that he pleased Zeus to bring her daughter back. Additionally, Demeter didn't do her jobs, so people were starving. Anyway because her daughter ate the food of Heidi's world, she had to live 6 months there, and 6 months with Demeter.
