Jack frost is not a holiday leading man. He's not like Santa Claus or the Easter Bunny. He does however show up once in a while in during Christmas movies and songs. You can hear his name in "Chestnuts Roasting on an Open Fire" often refered to as "The Christmas Song." The line is, "Jack Frost nipping at your nose." He is also in the Tim Allen Christmas movie, "The Santa Clause 3: The Escape Clause." You can find him as one of the heroes in "The Guardians" and there are three\ movies with the name "Jack Frost" One has a lead singer of a struggling band gets turned into a snow man after his son plays his harmonica and brings him back to life. The others are about a serial killer snow man.
Where did Jack Frost come from and who is he supposed to be?
Acording to Norse Folklore, Jack frost (Or Jokul Frosti as they called him, which means Icicle Frost) is an elf who "embodies crisp, cold, winter weather and was the son of the winds." He will come into town late at night and make beautiful frost designs on windows."He is often portrayed as an invisible spirit whom nobody can touch or hear. Though basically friendly and jolly, Jack Frost, if provoked, can kill his victims by covering them with snow." In the movie The Santa Clause 2: The Escape Clause, he freezes Santa's ex-wife and her husband. He might not be someone you want to make mad; unless of course you know someone that gives "Magical Hugs." At least it worked to unfreeze them in The Santa Clause 3.
