People born in the year of the dragon are usually lively and excitable, so a birthday party full of dragon children could be a challenge! They are bright but sometimes arrogant and over confident. They know what's right and don't like gossip and can be sensitive to others. And they won't struggle to make a decision! They make good leaders but can have fiery tempers and little eccentricities, too.
