No matter the holiday, it's common traditions of kindness, generosity, hospitality, and warmth of spirit that unite different celebrations. In Dragons: Rescue Riders: Huttsgalor Holiday, those elements play out in both the characters' interactions and in their determination to solve the mystery that presents itself. Leyla and Dak and their dragon friends refuse to sit idly by when a series of calamities puts their neighbors' cherished holiday in jeopardy, and when the culprits are found, they go the extra mile to help them as well. In true holiday spirit, the characters' efforts prove that kindness always warms even the chilliest of hearts.

Huttsgalor's Odinyule traditions introduce the idea of cultural celebrations that are different from a family's own. As the story evolves, viewers will see elements of Christmas traditions work their way into the Vikings' revamped holiday as well, which is a fun twist. In that way, the story reminds us that while old traditions are wonderful to have and a means of familiarity with our family heritages, there's also joy in creating new ones together as families grow and friendships change.
