Appreciate a Dragon Day : Fantastic Ideas!


Fun Ways To Celebrate Appreciate A Dragon Day

 

Yes… there is indeed an official day to celebrate dragons! January 16th of every year is  “Appreciate a Dragon Day“. It’s one of those  observances you might not be aware of unless of course you travel in dragon circles.  We’re big fans of dragons over here so we decided to post a few extra cool ideas we found across the web in honor of the day.  As is typical here at Our Peaceful Planet the ideas are aimed at adults but that doesn’t mean kids can do some of them too! I mean we are  talking dragons here.
