Let There Be Dragons!
It is a great time to escape into books of fantasy and, more specifically, into the worlds of dragons!
Did you know that the phrase “there be dragons” comes from ancient map makers that would put dragons on the edge of the map to indicate areas that were unknown and potentially dangerous? 2020 is over. We know how that went. The question is, should we put dragons all over our 2021 calendars?
As we begin 2021, let’s hope that the only dragons are in our books!
