The key of Spring

   There is goddess Lelya in Slavic mythology - the goddess of spring and fertility. And yet it is the patroness of young children. Even now, we often call babies "Lyalya". Thus, we urge the blessing of the goddess Lely. 
   This character of a young goddess, who brings love and joy of the earth, is very impressive. I think she wore a small silver key to unlock them the rainbow and young leaves.
   Lelya was the daughter of the mother goddess Lada. Together they were called goddesses Rozhanits. They were the epitome of the female essence of man and nature, the embodiment of peace, fertility and birth. 
But once the evil goddess Morana kidnapped Sun and Lelya - hid them in an ice cave. Then reigned eternal night and winter on earth . 

   Thunder god Perun, husband Lelya, saved her - with golden lightning broke the power of Morana and returned the warm to people . 
Spring will come again soon and we'll all be glad and rejoice when we hear the first thunder
