There was always a lot of speculation about the true meaning of this song & many theories have came about over the years, but in this article, we’ll tell you the actual meaning of Puff the Magic Dragon.
“Who doesn’t remember and love this wonderful folk song for children, performed by the trio Peter, Paul and Mary?
I can still recall every word in every verse of this beloved tune, though I am reminded that, as a child, I had a tough time with “frolicked in the autumn mist” and came up with my own alternate words that kind of fit.
Puff The Magic Dragon evokes that magical time in all of our lives, when life was simple, Santa Clause was real, and when we actually played and let our imaginations take us to far-off lands like Honahlee. We invented imaginary friends and something like a magic dragon was very real to us indeed.”
