2. an imaginary person who stands for an idea. Uncle Sam, Cupid, Justice, and Father Time are personifications.

Personification is when an author gives something that isn't human characteristics.  Example:  The wind breathed gently through the trees.  The wind is not human, wind does not breathe.

Personification is giving human characteristics to non-human things through the description.  This not include cartoon animals that talk.

Ex.

Yes -> The fire crawled through the house, destroying everything in its path. (Crawling is a human characteristic)

No -> Mickey Mouse talked to the children about living in Florida.
