What do you call....

.... one of these?
All my life, I've called them "lightnin' bugs."

I asked Greg, and all
his life, he's called them "lightnin' bugs."

But this boy?

More often than not he calls them "Fireflies."

And where did this difference in terminology come from?

Turns out the answer is one we hear quite often to a variety of questions....

"I read it in a book."
