Bracken loves going outside on cold days, whenever we’ve had a visit from Jack Frost, to see the little ice crystals before they melt away. Don’t the ice crystals look so magical, especially when the sun shines on them and makes them sparkle? I was curious what Wikipedia would say about Jack Frost, and here is what it says:
“Jack Frost is the personification of frost, ice, snow, sleet, and freezing cold weather, a variant of Old Man Winter held responsible for frosty weather, for nipping the nose and toes in such weather, coloring the foliage in autumn, and leaving fernlike patterns on cold windows in winter.
Starting in late 19th century literature, more filled-out characterizations of Jack Frost have made him into a sprite-like character. He sometimes appears as a sinister mischief maker or as a hero.”
