Jack Frost nipping at your nose

By BillRookery
Taken this morning after another hard frosty night, but not as cold as last night -4C

You can find this expression in a classic Christmas song by Nat King Cole, “Chestnuts Roasting on an Open Fire, If winter were a person, it would be Jack Frost. “Frost” is the thin layer of ice that covers surfaces when it gets very cold—usually seen on grass.

Jack Frost (also called “Old Man Winter”) is an old character who goes around and nips (gently bites) at people’s noses and toes during winter. So when Jack Frost is nipping at your nose, you feel a biting cold on your face.

Lovely image - like the 'winter light'. I'm thinking, "In the bleak midwinter, frosty wind did moan ....."
