Welcome to Dragon’s Eye View 2018 A to Z Challenge: V is for Vivat!

Vivat is “a cry wishing someone long life and prosperity” (from Wiktionary)!  It comes to English directly from the Latin vīvere meaning to live.

In the Medieval research and re-creation group the Society for Creative Anachronism, when an award is publicly given (usually “in court”), the audience responds with a hearty cry of “Vivat! Vivat! Vivat!”

This honoring exclamation is both heartening for the recipient as well as a joy to shout for the audience.

Here at Dragon’s Eye View we say “Vivat, Dragons!” and celebrate reading, learning, and creating with dragons.

This month of April we have focused on cursive with the A to Z Challenge (only 4 letters to go) — with the occasional book review and coloring page.

We look forward expanding our offerings to other topics (charts, gardening, holidays, and crafts are all even better with dragons!) and educational subjects (can math can be fun with dragons?) in the coming months.  We’d love for you to continue to join us here as we grow, plus on Twitter, and on Pinterest. Are you on either of those platforms? Let us know so we can follow you!

And now — Vivat, Cursive!
