Fun fact! According to folklorists, all myths, fairy tales and nursery rhymes that
are about some dude named Jack are talking about the same guy
What this means is, that ever single one of the following
Jack Be Nimble (who jumped over burning candles for fun)
Jack the Giant Killer (who sold his cows for magic beans then robbed and
killed a giant)
Stingy Jack (who tricked the devil so many times he was banned from
both afterlives)
Jack of Jack and Jill (who splattered his head open falling down a hill)
Jack o' Lanter (the headless horseman spirit of halloween)
Jack Frost (the spirit who heralds the end of autumn and the start of
winter)
Are literally the same jackass who made so many bad life choices he ended up
an immortal ice dullahan with a pumpkin serving as both his head and flashlight
E biggest-gaudiest-patronuses
but what an incredible journey he had getting there

    • Jack Frost actually comes from the Scandinavian sea king (viking), Jokul Frosti who was viewed as the ruler of ice and snow. While his descendants can accurately trace back to him, the legends about him labeled him as a jotunn (frost giant) so for official purposes he is considered a legend/myth.

    • Actually jack was just sort of a place holder name. For example Jack the Ripper and spring-heeled Jack. It was just common to use the name Jack to refereeing to some person you didn’t know or care the name of.

    • The actual reason for this was because in Britain at the time these stories came about, "Jack" was used to refer to a random guy. In the same way that we use John Doe to refer to an unknown male, the English called any unnamed character Jack.
