Snow

A myth submitted to the site by Molly Watkins

Earth

A long time ago in an ice cold mountain of Greenland there was a war between Zeus and the goddess of ice, Jasmin. Jasmin was tall and skinny with very long, blonde beautiful hair and she also wore a white satin grown all the time. If you made Jasmin mad she would make a ice storm but if you made her happy she would do you a favour.

One day, Apollo asked Jasmin to make a huge ice storm because Demester was sad in the winter because he wanted to make it look beautiful in winter. But Apollo wanted the sun to reflect off the ice and make everything sparkle. Zeus found out what Jasmin was doing he told her not to make an ice storm or he would punish her.

Jasmin decided to make an ice storm as she loved to make people happy. She heard that Zeus was very angry with her so she ran and hid in the Mountains.

Zeus found Jasmine hiding in the mountains but instead of punishing her he decided to go to war. Zeus made a massive storm with lighting, dark storm clouds, high winds, lots of heavy rain and loud thunder. The people of the lands did not know what was happing and became very scared.

As the war kept going on Zeus kept the rain and Jasmin kept making ice. Eventually the ice and rain mixed to make slush. Then the slush kept freezing and it started to make freezing rain. When freezing rain started to come down it was just enough to make snow.

Zeus didn’t like snow because it was dangerous for the people of the lands. Athena, Zeus daughter then went to see what was happing and why Zeus was mad. After she found out she looked down at the people of the lands and the gods and goddesses thought about the snow. Since Athena was Zeus favourite daughter, getting him to stop the storm wasn’t very hard.

The people of the lands loved it because it was lots of fun to play even though the snow was covering the very beautiful flowers.
They all agreed that the snow was very beautiful, so the decide that every year Zeus would make rain and Jasmin would make ice which mixed together, would make snow.
