You Don't Know Jack

Tradition holds Jack Frost responsible for the crystal patterns on windows in winter.

English folklore portrays Jack Frost as an elfish creature who personifies extreme cold winter weather. Some believe Jack originates in Germanic folklore, specifically Anglo-Saxon and Norse winter customs.
