Saint-Nicholas challenge for well-behaved girls and boys

in #hivebuzz7 months ago (edited)

You've been a good boy or girl all year with all your Hive friends? Perfect, you are just a few steps away from getting an exclusive badge.

Why celebrate Saint Nicholas?

Saint Nicholas' Day, observed on December 6 in Western Christian countries, December 5 in the Netherlands and December 19 in Eastern Christian countries, is the feast day of Saint Nicholas.

It is celebrated with particular regard to his reputation as a bringer of gifts.

In Ukraine, children wait for St. Nicholas to come and to put a present under their pillows provided that the children were good during the year. Children who behaved badly may expect to find a twig or a piece of coal under their pillows.

In the Netherlands, "Dutch children put out a clog filled with hay and a carrot for Saint Nicholas' horse. On Saint Nicholas' Day, gifts are tagged with personal humorous rhymes written by the sender."

In the United States, one custom associated with Saint Nicholas Day is children leaving their shoes in the foyer on Saint Nicholas Eve in hope that Saint Nicholas will place some coins on the soles, for them to awake to.

Were you kind enough to deserve a gift?

HiveBuzz has prepared a new badge for all the Hivers that have been kind throughout the year.

If you have been a good boy or girl, follow these rules to get your badge:

  1. Upvote this post!

  2. Write a comment on this post before December 7 at 23:59 UTC telling us the gift you would like to receive from Saint-Nicolas. The funnier, the better!
    Who knows, maybe you will receive what you asked for...

  3. Tag one friend of yours who you know has also been a well-behaved boy or girl during the year. You may both get an additional gift if they also successfully complete the challenge.

Example:

Dear Saint Nicholas, I wish to receive a Hive-Punk that looks like you.
I know @arcange has been a good boy in 2021.

BEWARE:
No more than
1 comment
and
1 friend tag
otherwise Saint Nicholas will not be happy and will disqualify you!

Thank you Saint Nicholas!



PS: Badges and gifts will be distributed from December 6. Do not forget the carrot for Saint Nicholas' donkey!


HiveBuzz is a project created by @arcange

Dear Saint-Nicholas, I have been a good boy all year long. I didn't say bad words, or really not a lot.

I would like to receive a brand new Lambo to go with my friends to the next edition of HiveFest.
I know of many nice girls and boys on Hive and @traciyork has been one of them.

Here a carrot kit for your donkey:

Thank you so much, @arcange, and...

Thank you @traciyork 🌹

Dear @arcange,

Here is an awesome brand new Lambo for you. With this one, you will be able to bring as many friends as you want to HiveFest.

Happy Saint-Nicholas 🍬🍭🍬

Merci Saint Nicolas 😂

!LOL

Why did the astronaut throw away his vegetarian burger?
He wanted something *meteor*.

@arcange, I sent you an $LOLZ on behalf of @consciouscat
Use the !LOL or !LOLZ command to share a joke and an $LOLZ. (1/4)

This year I have behaved well, I think I deserve a little present from Santa, so I'm going to start making my wish.

First of all, I would like to ask for good health for all the people in this world, especially for those who are in hospital this Christmas, so that they may soon recover their health and enjoy being with their families.

And if it is not too much to ask, I would like for me to have many customers who buy my biscuits, 🤭 so I would have a little more income, so Santa can give more gifts to other people, because otherwise I start asking for shoes, clothes, an oven that does not burn my biscuits, and stop counting.

I have a friend who has also been very good this @thekittygirl

Hey there, St-Nicolas. I've been truer to myself and took part in an event to give of myself and feel so good about it.

If such a thing exists, I'd like a tag-tucker-inner. You know, something that just automatically tucks in the shirt tag when my husband forgets to tuck it in. Honestly, I cut mine off, I don't know why he doesn't and he doesn't want me cutting them off. So, a practical little thing like that would be great.

Oh, and here, @clixmoney deserves some goodies too.

Dear Santa Claus!
I've been trying to be good and polite all year long. I have everything I need so I'm not asking for anything. I just wish you good health and safe squeezing through chimneys.
But I have an idea of what you could give @gtg - the wizard will definitely needs a new hat. The old one is already badly damaged by wind and rain.

Hello dear Saint Nicholas what a thrill it is to be able to talk to you and ask you my wish as a good boy and I think you know that I like cars a lot, especially Formula-1 cars but at least bring me one for karting to start with, I thank you Saint Nicholas and I also invite my good friend @gudnius.comics. I couldn't get fresh carrot for your donkey but I made him one, hope he likes my gift. Ciao my friend Saint Nicolas 🎅

zanahoria.jpg

@alandesign, gracias por pensar en mí y considerarme un buen amigo, espero que puedas tener ese carro para el carting. No pude ver las fotos de tu experiencia en san jacinto porque el post estaba muteado, la comunidad fulldeportes es muy estricta y actúa sin empatía a veces. Sigue compartiendo tus dones en otras comunidades más amigables jejeje. Saludos!!!

Si @gudnius.comics eres mi buen amigo HIVERS y la verdad si fue una experiencia triste en mi primera vez en esa comunidad pero siempre hay mas oportunidades, gracias amigo 😊

Drogi Święty Mikołaju, I'm not sure if I was good or bad, that's more like a grey area ;-)
I'd love to get a week of vacation before Christmas to recharge my batteries.

I believe that @rozku was a good girl, at least when people were watching ;-)

of course I was good girl when people were watching.
and although I do not deserve it, I spend all my reward on Gandalf's vacation, just let it not be too hot.
and a little more desserts, not like the last time.

Dear Saint Nicholas 🌟
I was good and @bashadow was also good!
I would like a dear reindeer team from Saint Nicholas!
They can look like moose if need be lol
A extra team would help deliver more up-votes to
all the good 🎁 HIVE boys and girls!
Merry Christmas 🎄 @hivebuzz! @arcange! :-)

Hello Saint Nicholas, I don't know if I am well behaved enough this year, but I am sure I haven't made anyone cry yet this year LOL.
And I do love to get a gift 😁.
What gift do I want the most from the saint...hmmm let me think about it.
Ah ja... I wish I could win a great gold card to spank more monsters in Splinterlands everyday until Christmas LOL.
Stay safe @arcange 😉 and @tangmo is also being a nice kid I think.

Help us to move forward and that Hive continues to be the best platform in the world. May Hive stay high and may we continue to work to build this beautiful hive and our life. I send you a giant and special hug!

Dear Sinterklaas ( as we call you in The Netherlands ),

I would love to receive some bitterballen with mustard and some real Gouda cheese, as I kind of miss these Dutch delicacies, since my move to Portugal in 2018.

Thank you!

P.S. @justinparke has been a good boy and could sure use some extra love as well as a present in his sandals these days.

Thanks my man, hope it comes true.

It did, but I ended up with digital food and haven't mastered consuming this yet and reaping its benefits.

Dear Nicky.

Dear Saint Nicholas, I think I have been a good girl this year, so this year, I wish for a Shadowlands card that will magically make this gamer girl a good blockchain gamer girl aswell (because honestly, dear Saint Nicholas, I suck).

Dear Saint Nicolas,
I have been kind and very good throughout the year. I did my best not to mess things up, and if I did, I managed to fix them.
My wish is for the covid to disappear so that people can finally hug each other.
I Heard that @arcange behaved well this year. Please, be kind to him too.

Here are the best carrots I found (100% donkey approved).

Dear Saint Nicholas, I wish that you make Rio Tinto change its mind and leave our country. Actually, I would like that they disappear and that all land and people.s lives they destroyed become like before their arrival. Think that is not just funny wish but hilarious, yet, it is my wish.
@mipiano was a good girl and good teacher, she sure deserves a nice gift.

Dear Saint Nicholas, I wish my life back how it was before Corona, so that e.g. we can do our Hive-meetups face-2-face again like in old times. I guess @manncpt would appreciate that as well.

Dear St Nick,
I would like a Tonka truck dumptruck, since I always wanted one as a kid and never got one (though I enjoyed playing with my neighbors' Tonka trucks, lol). It will probably end up in a Faerie Story at some point. :D

Oh, so sweet of you to have noticed me. I really do cherish.

Dear St. Nicholas! This year I behaved very well, that's why I want a romantic vacation with my husband, we have not traveled for a long time, it would be two tickets for us to the Maldives, and we would like to stay at the hotel Soneva Jani. Thank you dear Santa!

Don't forget to bring a gift to @lauralauze.

Dearest St. Nicholas,

It's @peaq here, this year has been really tough and it's been hard to see a light at the end of the tunnel but I remain hopeful. Being on Hive has been a joy-giver as it has helped me focus my energy on something fulfilling and rewarding.

I would kindly love to have really nice upvotes and reblog from you on my last 7 recent posts because I worked hard on them and hope to be encouraged. I tried to remain a good girl against all odds and I also know that @young-boss-karin has been a beautiful person in and out in 2021.

I also included a dutch clog with hay and carrot for your donkey. Thank you so much for considering my request.

Love,
Peaq ❤️

Ayeeeeeeeeee...Thank you so much @hivebuzz
I'm super excited 💛.

Querido Saint-Nicholas, comienzo por agradecerle su profundo amor hacia la humanidad, y llenar de alegría a la niña que me habita, quien con una sonrisa le escribe esta carta.
Ud. sabe como ha sido mi comportamiento en este año, no tengo por que mentirle. Sin embargo, deseo me conceda el abrazar a mis dos hermanos y sentir el latir de sus corazones...
No espere recibir una galleta, mejor le dejo dos arepas con mantequilla y queso junto a un café con leche, disfrútelo tranquilamente, sin apuros. Ah!!! no olvide mi insignia
Mi querida @evev ha sido extraordinaria, recuerde pasar por su casa y dejarle un obsequio
gracias.
