Question
were the gods in everyday life or were they just in the stories?

Answer
Dear Thomas,

nice question.
During the times when the Greek civilization was at its height there were people who really believed the gods could walk among the ' normal ' people.

It is a matter of believe of course
Nowadays people also believe that Jesus can be seen or the virgin Maria.

Fact is that all the gods are in the stories

Hope that this is explanation enough
