Researched by Kayleb Crawford

Many people know and have heard of Cupid, the little baby with wings who flys around and shoots people with a golden arrow to make them fall in love. But have you ever heard of Aphrodite? I am here to give you a little more information on the two most popular love gods.



Aphrodite
Known as the Greek Goddess of love and beauty, Aphrodite is one of the twelve Olympians. Some common symbols that represent her are doves, roses, myrtle trees and swans. Aphrodite is said to have a son, Eros, who is similar to the Roman's version of Cupid. While Aphrodite is considered "the Love Goddess," she is not the only god that is associated with that title.


Cupid
Cupid is known as the Roman god of love and beauty. It is said that when his mother wanted two people to fall in love, she would send Cupid to shot them in the heart with a golden arrow to unite them in marriage. In Roman mythology, his mother's name was Venus, which is the same as the Greek god, Aphrodite.

February is always a great time for sports. As always, the Super Bowl was hosted in L.A. This year, it was a tough match up between the Cincinnati Bengals and the Los Angeles Ramsy. Both teams played well, but only one team could win, and this time it was the LA Rams. But that game wasn’t the only sports related event that has been happening. The Winter Olympics are here, and it has been as exciting as ever. There has been snowboarding and skiing and all kinds of winter events. Some would even suggest getting some popcorn and watching it while you can!

The first Olympics were held in the summer of 776 B.C. It was held in honor of the Greek God, Zeus. In the earliest Olympic games, winners were awarded with a crown of olive leaves. Unlike now, where the winners get a shiny gold medal. In the first Olympics there were games like sprinting, wrestling and chariot racing. When there were wars (and there often were), they temporarily stopped fighting for the Olympic games.

Some differences were that there were different games played, like Pankration where the competitors fight and it only ended when either one of them died or voluntarily gave up. The biggest difference in these early games was that only men were able to compete!
