Every year, a new Christmas dragon will be released for a brief time surrounding this holiday, and old Christmas dragons are able to produce offspring of their same breed. Christmas Dragons will lay multiple eggs, causing the Abandoned Page (AP) to have many previous-release holiday eggs in it.
- The red, gold, and green "Holly" dragon released in 2007.
- The red and white "Yulebuck" dragon in 2008.
- The gold and white "Snow Angel" dragon in 2009.
- The gold, green, and red "Ribbon Dancer" dragon in 2010.
- The gold, green, red, and silver "Winter Magi" dragon in 2011.
- The red, green, and white "Wrapping-Wing" dragon in 2012.
- The blue, gold, pink, and white "Solstice Dragon" in 2013.
- The spring green, green-tinted blue and white "Mistletoe Dragon" in 2014.
- The white and blue "Aegis Dragon" in 2015.
- The gold and blue "Snow Dragon" in 2016.
- The white and gold "Garland Dragon" in 2017.
Christmas dragons are limited to 2 Cave-born (CB) eggs per scroll. You can keep one egg of your previous Christmas dragon breedings, and take as many old holiday dragons you want. In the past, if you exceeded the 2-CB-per-scroll limit on catching the new-release dragons, those extra eggs would be auto-abandoned. Currently, if you attempt to pick up additional CB eggs when you are at your limit, an error message is displayed by the website and prevents you from taking it.
TJ09 had previously stated outright that no breed of Christmas dragon would be re-released; if you missed a previous year's holiday dragon, the only way to obtain one is if someone who already has one breeds it for you. Since 2017, this has changed, and now a new temporary holiday-themed biome is added to the cave where CB versions of previous releases are available to catch.
Producing bred Christmas dragons is only possible at Christmas time; for the rest of the year, holiday dragons only produce the same breed as the other parent. Since the "rare x rare breeding" got implemented, Christmas dragons are able to reproduce with each other the week surrounding Christmas day. During the course of the year, they can breed with standard dragons. These breedings result only in their partner's breed of eggs, but in the time period surrounding Christmas they can result in eggs of the breed of the Christmas dragon parent.
None of them have a Breed Specific Action except for the Aegis dragon. Ribbon Dancers, Snow Angels, Solstices and Garlands are female-only dragons, while Yulebucks, Winter Magis, Wrapping-Wings and Aegis are male-only. When first released, Holly Dragons were also male-only. In 2008, however, the Holly dragons were able to breed more of their kind during Christmas, and the resulting offspring were able to become either female or male. They share this trait with the Mistletoe dragons which were female-only when first released in 2014 but were able to produce male Mistletoe offspring starting in 2015.

"Holiday 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 Winter.”"
The adult description was noticed as changed on April 6, 2015. The original description is below. The change was to stay consistent with the fact that Christmas was never specifically mentioned elsewhere on site - Christmas time has always been referred to as just "Holiday" on the site and forum.
"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.'"
"Garland Dragons are a welcome sight in the skies during the holiday season. Their slightly luminous scales shine softly at night or catch the day’s sunbeams as they turn loops and spirals in the sky. They will often drape themselves around tall pine trees or along rooflines, adding a festive note to the winter scenery. Occasionally they drop red mana berries from their garland-like mane, which offer a comforting warmth to those that find them."
