Saint-Nicolas challenge for well-behaved girls and boys

in #hivebuzz4 months ago

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.

Sort:  

upvoted. the funnier the better, agree. "no pain - no gain", as they say. "easy come - easy go", i.e. less valued. so... let me think of my wishes...


Me: -- I was a good boy, here is my wishlist. Gimme something.
SN: -- Are you sure of that? Any proof-pics, recommendation letters?
Me: -- I have got 450 friends followers! They will say for me!
SN: -- Hhaha, you say 450 friends? And how much of them actually bother to read your posts? 5? 10?
Me: -- No, not 5, much more! fifteen! or even maybe 20! they do care, and comment back!
SN: -- Comment back? Haha, do they say 'What a brillian click' and 'Successfull post, have a nice day'?.
Me: -- Definitely no. There were a few like this, but I killed them and dug their corpses in the forest. Now I have only nice guys from engagement league, they come to my door to talk about the ...
SN: -- Okey, okey, now I believe you. I just checked your hivebuzz profile, you 've got 12500 replies, it cant be all made of shit. You was a good boy. What do you want from me?
Me: -- Yawwww! The first, I want Hive to become one, no, five, no, better seven dollars - I love the figure 'seven'...
SN: -- Stop, stop, man! Why do you ask me of this?
Me: -- Cause... er... well, we need a miracle... and I thought you are in charge of miracles? Is that so?
SN: -- Hmm, well, okey. Lets do it my way: I promise you o fulfill this weird desire, go to sleep and one day you wake up to see it came true. I just didnt promise I will do this exactly tomorrow. This one will take time, its, errr, rather a complex one.
Me: -- But why? Why is that so?
SN: -- You see, everything became too complicated these days... You are not the only person who ask. Why, do you think, the BTC rate experiencing such strange somersaults - up and down?
Me: -- No, I am not in the know. Why?
SN: -- Cause that result is a sum derived from the desires of millions crypto hoadlers. Do not imagine you are alone asking me for this! Millions make such a wishes - ones want it go down, others want it go to the Moon. Do you know the totals, how many different cryptocurrencies are now multiplying in the world? That's it. So get in line, pray, and have a Happy New Year.

Haha, I can really imagine Santa's face listening and talking to you, my friend 😁

But as we already have been talking, your wishes are about the same as mine. So, I wish that your dreams about the Hive price will come true 😉


Cheers and !BEER

well, as we are on same blockchain, its no surprise we share same dreams! we may have different plans for investment of our earnings, but it doesnt change anything in thw whole picture, right?

the Santa was so kind! after a pause for consideration he have found a solution and brought me a cycle pump! to inflate the Hice token to 7 dollars (not sure if that was an exclusive or not - I didnt check, maybe he copypasted same digital present to all commenters in the thread?..) and I dared to make an experiment... sadly, I have to tell you that as soon as I pumped a Hive token to 6.96 mark -- that baloon said : ooops! - and cracked to zero. which means, we still ahve to find another solution.

please, accept from mea !BEER and !ENGAGE 50 as sa consolation.
do you plan to take part in the virt. festival ?

Well, as soon as the Hive has reached the 6.95 mark I have sold all my Hive and now I am rich, I can buy my van and retire 🤣 ... just another dream 😉

No, each comment has been individual - Saint Nicolas has brought different gifts to everyone, it seems. I have got a lottery ticket which win some day in the future ... probably ... hopefully :)

I wanted to get a free ticket, but had so much to do that I have forgotten about it. But I don't have any VR gear to enjoy the fest and to be honest, I'm no party guy either. So I will wait curious what you all have tell how it was ☺️


Cheers and !BEER
!ENGAGE 50 - very generous, thank you so much :)

Dear @qwerrie,

Anyway, I found this:

I hope that you like the color and it can be helpful for your request.
Happy Saint-Nicholas 🍬🍭🍬

super. I already tried it. and, know what?

dear @saint-nicolas, it worked almost perfectly! I pumped it like a baloon, it became bigger, fatter, nicer, but at 6,96 it said: phewwwwwww! and then, it said: ooooooopss, and... after that suddenly lost its weight to zero. what did I did wrong? and what now am I supposed to do?..

Saint Nicholas, I think always being a good girl is overrated...what fun is that 🙃

My gift this year would be for you to fly this COVID-19 off the planet and send it hurling into space as you head back to your secret home.

Be sure to stop at my house. I’ll be leaving you lots of cookies, milk and treats of carrots for your donkey. 🤗

Happy Saint-Nicholas 🍬🍭🍬

St Nick!

I've had to be a good, well behaved girl. It's not been a choice: I've been locked up most of the year...

What, I think you need, and I should try to arrange for you: some Scottish shorbread, haggis and a traditonal South African favourite: pickled fish.

In the meantime, some carrots from our garden for donkey Dick and there should be enough to share with Mrs Nick...

nice carrots! the good thing they are original and your own, not lended from Pixabay. when you lend smth from Pixabay, you know, Santa would fulfill rather the Pixabay designers wishes, then yours! -- cheers!

Hello dear St. Nicholas, there are many things I would love to ask you, among them the prosperity of the platform because thanks to it I have a little economic stability throughout the economic crisis I live in my country. I would also like, like the majority, to have more voting power to help those in need!

Here I leave you a carrot from my garden for your donkey (although I remember that you had reindeer haha).
Merry Christmas St. Nicholas ❤🥕.

Dear @edwarlyn11,

I do not have reindeer. You are confusing me with my old buddy Santa Claus.
Hopefully peace and abundance will come to earth.
Happy Saint-Nicholas 🍬🍭🍬

Too late as usual... but no worries. Gifts weren't wished for me, but as always, appreciate all you do @Arcange and @hivebuzz

Miracles sometimes happen. Check your board 😉

I think I have been a good boy? Nobody have complained at least!
I whish for growth on hive in mass!

P.s Its organic carrots! Not that shitty stuff everyone else is feeding your donkey!

lol. super! ecen if its a pixabay sourced... at least you have added some original (c) humour here. ps why some of them are pure orange, some are pale, and some are this strange dark-red colour? are they all organic... I start suspecting some suspicions. where did this come from?

Its all organic brother.

We only get the orange ones because it more normal and streamlined.
Google says there are 44 different carrots :p

on the 2nd thought, I consider it really should be! it is the GMO stuff that looks like all being cloned from one ideal thing... the natural stuff always have aberrations and caverns and natural varieties - - as it is naturel!

cheers!! wish your dreams come true.

Ye. GMO shit fucks stuff up.

I have been lucky to find different colored tomatos where I live now and then :D
Everything else is "perfect" red x)

Thanks man!

I used to say that 'best' is an enemy antagonist for the 'good'.

have a !BEER and !ENGAGE 20, I hope I still have smth left yet

Thank you for your engagement on this post, you have recieved ENGAGE tokens.

You need to stake more BEER (24 staked BEER allows you to call BEER one time per day)

I know who Saint Nicholas is:

Dear Saint Nicholas,

I was a good boy for the whole year and did my homework well. I didn't say bad words, or really very little.

For Saint Nicholas' day, I would like to receive one (or two) bottles of SangSom to share with my friends during HiveFest.

I prepared a carrot for your donkey and a good glass of milk for you.

Here a triple pack for you @arcange
Happy Saint-Nicholas 🍬🍭🍬

Merci Saint-Nicolas ❤️

I confirm - this guy always communicate back and dont do shit. homework was well done, as well!

Dear St Nicholas,
Lieber Nikolaus,

in Austria you go by foot and there's no donkey accompanying you, so I am sorry, but I don't have a carrot 🥕 prepared for you.
Also, here you have a thick book with you, wherein you can read whether one was a good boy or not. So I don't need to lie to you because you know everything anyway 😉

There's only one big wish I have: let the Hive raise to the moon that I can buy me my own car for photo trips.
Well, I have a car, but this one is occupied by my son to go to work and to drive around the lake with his girlfriend. I get it only when the fuel tank needs a refill 😂

If you cannot let the Hive price rise, a lottery win would also do 😁

Lieber @johannpiber,
Der Mond ist mir viel zu weit, noch mehr für Hive
Hier ist also Ihr Lottoschein.

Happy Saint-Nicholas 🍬🍭🍬

Na, das ist aber nett, dass du auch zu so großen Kindern wie mir kommst, lieber @saint-nicolas 😄

Ich danke dir für den Lottoschein und hoffe, dass ich auch so glücklich überraschte Augen machen werde 😃

Ich habe auch ein paar kleine Geschenke für dich: ein kleines !BEER für den Feierabend und ein paar !ENGAGE 30 sowie ein bisschen !invest_vote und hoffe, du hast eine Freude damit 🤗

Johann, again I am glad you are my friend and I am happy to read another nice comment from you (even tho it is not directed at my post). I totally share this idea.

BTW - in our country Santa is using deers carriage.
So, I definitely will prepare some lichens and moss, to feed them!

IMG_2483w.jpg

... and you certainly will have a !BEER in the fridge for Santa while the deer are eating 😁

I'm dreaming of a small stealth camper van which allows me to drive to my photo location the day before and sleep there till sunrise or start of a hike.
I don't mind getting up at 3 in the morning, but if then you have to drive a few hours it all turns into stress, what leads to bad photos many times.

Thanks a lot my friend, wish you a wonderful Sunday 🌞


!invest_vote

now, when you mentioned the sunrise and dAwn, the idea of a car (camping van) becomes clearer, I totally understand the shapes, why exactly you need it. this is your plot, what you love to shoot, and often shoot on a highest quality level. something different to what I am doing myself. Well, it finally will happen, I am sure. But better sooner, then later.
The lottery may help, but do you buy the lottery tickets, at all? ;)

!ENGAGE 20 and even more !BEER, just for you to have a bigger supply, when you need it.

Yes, that's pretty much the only reason why I would need a car. Of course, then I would use it every day to travel to different areas 😁

Yes, I'm playing the same numbers every week since decades, but I am still waiting for a win 😭
So, better sooner than later sounds great 😃

Thanks a lot for the !BEER my friend 🍻
