Why do we say "jump up and down"
30 Oct 06
Well, if I'm jumping, it's probably that I'm jumping on my bed, because it's very boingy and therefore I jump up on my bed then down off it. Therefore jumping up and down. :) I think this term jumping up and down has been made because obviously people living in Britain or anywhere this side of the world jump up and people living in Australia and stuff will be jumping down. :D
