January 16th Appreciate a Dragon Day

Dragons have been a part of our history since time began. Interestingly they are all a part of mythology but have served as a source of entertainment, chivalry, and adventure. Some are fire-breathing while others have indestructible scales, some fly, and some are bound to the ground.
