Holly adult

The Holidays are a winter event celebrated on Dragon Cave every December since 2007. Typically the celebration includes a winter-themed mini game and the release of a new Holiday dragon. In addition, the Holiday season is the only time that past Holiday dragons may be bred, or found in a limited-time Holiday biome of the cave.

Holiday dragons[]

Winter release

Holiday dragons are Limited release dragons that can only be found during the Holiday season. From December 19-25, past Holiday dragons can produce offspring of their own breed. A special Holiday biome also becomes available, allowing users to pick up cave-born eggs of past Holiday dragons.

New Holiday dragons are released on December 25, coinciding with the Christmas holiday. New Holiday eggs are usually available for 3 days. Like Valentine's Day dragons, Holiday dragons have a limit of two cave-born dragons per breed per scroll. This limit includes frozen hatchlings, but does not apply to bred dragons. Users can check their personal scroll limit status on the egg limits help page.

Traditionally, Holiday dragons have been single-gender breeds with the gender alternating every two years (eg, 2007 and 2008 releases were male, 2009 and 2010 were female). However, while cave-born Holly Dragons are always male and cave-born Mistletoe Dragons are always female, bred dragons of these breeds may be male or female.

Original breed description[]

Prior to 2015, Holiday dragons were known canonically as Christmas dragons The original description is below.

"Christmas dragons are a very mysterious breed. They are only seen during winter, and even then it is hard to catch a glimpse of one. They are responsible for the general cheer that spreads during the holidays. In essence, they are the 'Spirits of Christmas.'"
