After being kidnapped by her uncle Hades to be his wife she refuses to eat and drink the entire time she is there. Once the other gods force Hades to allow her to be released Persephone eats the seeds of a pomegranate (6) while being distracted in her joy. The food linked her to the underworld so she would have to spend one month for each seed that was eaten. Fun (or not so fun) addition: the gods only forced Hades to release Persephone because in her grief Demeter was neglecting the earth and everyone was going to starve to death. They didn't much care that Hades kidnapped his niece to force her to be his wife.
