Jack Frost is a composite of several characters like Father Frost and Jokul Frosti. This fictional being is believed to control winter elements. Common happenings attributed to Jack Frost include cold weather, winter precipitation, and foliage changes. In literary terms, he is sometimes thus used as an idiom – or figurative symbol – of the effects of winter.
