|RULES OF NEW DRAGON RELEASES AND DC EVENTS|
All newly released dragon and event information/updates is to be compiled on this article only.
|These rules apply while the dragon is being released and until after several days have passed where user's dragons have begun becoming adults. After that, the dragons' article(s) can be created.|
Failing to comply with these rules will result in a warning or even a suspension (one week suspension for creating the dragon's or event's article, or changing articles based on any new updates that events bring, before the dragons have grown up or before the event has ended).

For Dragon Cave’s tenth(!) holiday event, we’ve brought you something special—an advent calendar, with new content daily. For the next nine days, visit the calendar and open the doors to see what’s inside. Play games from years past to earn candy, and use that candy for new unlocks.
The event will be around for a full two weeks (until January 07 at 23:59 EST)—and you can open past days’ advent doors at any time—so there's plenty of opportunity to keep up if you’re busy this time of year.
A new holiday dragon is also available, starting now. It will drop all over the cave for the next three days, until December 27 at 23:59 EST. After that, they’re gone until next year.
However you choose to celebrate them, enjoy, and Happy Holidays! 
Holiday 2019 Release – Wintertide DragonEdit
|Egg||This egg emanates a gentle chime when met with the winter breeze.||–|
|Hatchling||Aww... It’s a cute baby dragon. Its feathers jingle when it rustles its wings.||birdzgoboom|
|Mature hatchling||Aww... It’s a cute baby dragon. Its feathers jingle when it rustles its wings.
And look! The leaf near its head has grown larger. It must be close to maturing.
|Adult||Wintertide Dragons are a shy species that tend to be docile in nature. The leaf-like growths on their heads are rumored to have medicinal properties, though few have ever gotten close enough to test that theory. They maintain small groups in the mountains where they live, and rarely leave their homes in the peaks, aside from a short winter migration. The rhythmic chime of their feathers and their melodic wails are often considered to be the ballad of winter.||birdzgoboom|

Holiday 2019 EventEdit
This year's holiday event features an Advent Calendar filled with daily surprises and the return of some Holiday events from previous years. These classic games can be played to earn candy , which unlocks special features.
All users who participate in the Advent Calendar event receive a commemorative badge. Users participating in decorating events (Tree Decorating, Gingerbread House Decorating, Snow Wars 2) for the first time through the Advent Calendar also receive a version of the original event badges in order to display their decorations to other users. However, the badges display a slightly different text when viewed in the badges page.

Quick reference of Advent Calendar rewards:
Day 1EditThe first day of the Advent Calendar unlocked the Tree Decorating mini-game from the 2010 Holiday event, and the Holiday Cooking mini-game from the 2012 Holiday event.
Decoration sets for the Tree Decorating remained the same as the original event. However, instead of receiving ornaments in presents opened each day, ornament sets could be unlocked using candy earned by playing the other mini-games.
Users participating in tree decorating for the first time via the Advent Calendar received a tree decorating badge so their tree may be found via their scroll. However, the badge text is slightly altered, reading "Decorated a tree during the Holiday Advent Calendar" versus "Participated in the 2010 Holiday Contest"
Trees that had been decorated in the original 2010 event became editable in their decorated state, and users could rearrange their existing ornaments. To add new ornaments, users needed to re-unlock the decoration sets with candy, even if they had received all the decoration sets in the original event.
Tree Decorating via the Advent Calendar did not include a Tree Decorating Contest as the 2010 event did, though users can still share their trees with others with the link: https://dragcave.net/tree
The Holiday Cooking mini-game behaved similarly to the original 2012 Holiday event. After initializing the game, cooking ingredients would appear throughout the site. Clicking on the ingredients would collect them for use in creating recipes. The ingredients and recipes remained the same as the original game.
There was no Prize Dragon raffle associated with the 2019 event, so completing recipes did not earn raffle entries as they had in the 2012 event. Instead, discovering and making recipes earned candy, which could be used to unlock decorations in the decorating mini-games. Additionally, while recipe cards did appear alongside ingredients, they were not always "Red Star" recipes, and it was not required that a user collect a "Red Star" recipe card before cooking the dish.
Cooking different classes of dish awarded different amounts of candy for the Advent Calendar event:
|Failed Experiment||5 candy|
|Regular recipe||10 candy|
|Red Star recipe||50 candy|
Users playing Holiday Cooking for the first time via the Advent Calendar did not retroactively unlock the pie badge. This is likely because the badge does not serve as a display link for this event as it does for the decorating events.
The second day of the Advent Calendar unlocked a random Tree Decorating decoration set, and gave users a bonus of 500 candies. No additional mini-games were unlocked on this day.
The third day of the Advent Calendar unlocked the Wreath Decorating mini-game from the 2011 Holiday event.
The Wreath Decorating mini-game featured the same decoration sets as the original 2011 event. Instead of unlocking ornaments daily by reading the Holiday Tales, users could unlock their decorations with candy earned in other mini-games.
Users decorating a wreath for the first time via the Advent Calendar received a wreath decorating badge, though its text reads "Decorated a wreath during the Holiday Advent Calendar" rather than "Participated in the 2011 Holiday Event".
Users who had decorated a wreath in the 2011 event could edit their wreathes in their previously decorated state. To add new ornaments, however, decoration sets needed to be unlocked with candy.
Decorated wreathes can be shared via the link: https://dragcave.net/wreath
On the fourth day of the Advent Calendar event, the Mana Alchemy mini-game became available to play. Completing the game awarded candies which users could spend to unlock decoration sets. The number of candies awarded corresponded to the final score of the game.
The Mana Alchemy mini-game behaved the same as in the 2014 Holiday event. However, as there was no Prize Dragon raffle associated with the 2019 event, completing the game did not earn raffle entries. Additionally, mana shards earned via the game were converted to candies for use in the Advent Calendar event, and large mana shards did not appear around the site as they had in 2014.
On the fifth day of the Advent Calendar, a random Wreath Decorating ornament set was unlocked. Users were also given a bonus of 500 candies. No additional mini-games were unlocked on this day.
The sixth day of the Advent Calendar unlocked the Gingerbread House Decorating from the 2012 Holiday event.
Gingerbread House DecoratingEdit
The Gingerbread House Decorating mini-game featured the same decorations as the 2012 event. Unlike the original event, decoration sets needed to be unlocked with candy earned in other mini-games. Additionally, the game did not require a user to bake a gingerbread house in the Holiday Cooking mini-game in order to play. It became available to any user who opened the sixth Advent Calendar door, regardless of whether they had discovered the gingerbread house recipe.
Users participating in Gingerbread House Decorating for the first time via the Advent Calendar received a gingerbread house badge, though the text reads "Decorated a gingerbread house during the Holiday Advent Calendar" rather than "Decorated a gingerbread house during the 2012 Holiday Cooking event". Users who had previously decorated a gingerbread house could edit their existing houses, though additional decorations needed to be unlocked with candy.
Users can share their gingerbread houses via the link: https://dragcave.net/holidays12_house
The seventh day of the Advent Calendar unlocked a random Gingerbread House Decorating decoration set. Users were also given a bonus of 500 candies. No additional mini-games were unlocked on this day.
The eighth day of the Advent Calendar event unlocked the Tetris Puzzle mini-game from the 2017 Holiday event. Completing a puzzle earned candies which could be used to unlock decoration sets.
The Tetris Puzzles mini-game behaved similarly to the 2017 event. Users need to fit all the puzzle pieces into the game board in order to win, and the puzzles are available at easy (4x5 squares), medium (7x4 squares) and hard (8x6 squares) difficulties. As part of the Advent Calendar, users were awarded candies for completing puzzles rather than earning fire or ice mana.
Completing higher puzzle complexities awarded more candies:
The holiday story from the 2017 event was not included in the Advent Calendar, and users playing the Tetris Puzzle game for the first time via the Advent Calendar did not retroactively receive the fire-and-ice badge.
On the ninth and final day of Advent Calendar unlocks, the Snow Wars 2 mini-game from the 2018 Holiday event became available to play. The game does not cost or award candies, but requires its own in-game resources.
Snow Wars 2Edit
The Snow Wars 2 mini-game behaved the same as it had in the previous year's Holiday event. Users could decorate their forts, as well as build weapons which could be used to attack others. Resources to build decorations had to be collected from the game field, rather than being bought with candy like the other decorating games of the Advent Calendar event.
Users who played Snow Wars 2 for the first time via the Advent Calendar received a badge to display their fort. However, the badge text reads "Created a fort in Snow Wars 2" rather than "Participated in the 2018 Holidays Snow Wars 2 event".
