Look!!!!! I'm not alone!!!!! ^_^




Here's what is on my mind: I was watching Rise of the Guardians with my little sister, and I thought, wait, if nobody believed in Jack Frost until 2012, then how did the expression "Jack Frost nipping at your nose" come around?

Jack Frost has never been something for people to believe in. He is the result of giving a phenomenon (cold weather, in this case) human-like qualities. This is a literary (rhetorical) device known as personification. Rise of the Guardians took it a step further and imagined Jack Frost as an actual person. Jack Frost is as "Believed in" as Mother Nature.

The character of Jack Frost has been appearing in literature since the 1800s (as a personification of winterish weather). he's probably an adaptation of a spirit from saxon and/or norse mythology.
