It is time to announce the winners! I loved reading every post and really struggle with the picking of winners. Everyone who participated with valid entries has already received one share of @steembasicincome each.
The idea of the contest is simply this.
One of the things that excite me the most about Steemit is the opportunity to engage with people from all over the world. Somebody once said:
You will find that I am just like you. And you will find that I am nothing like you.
The question this time around was this.
Tell us about your favourite public holiday in your country. Give us some information on why and how you celebrate it. A personal perspective or experience of you celebrating it would also be welcome.
Here are a couple of things I enjoyed about the answers in general.
- The national / cultural pride that shone through in the posts.
- Traditions that I had never heard of before.
- The sense of fun and joy portrayed in the descriptions of different celebrations.
And of course, the honesty and openness with which people were willing to share their worlds!
The big prize winners in this round are:
- Holidays of Russia. Victory day. by @edwardsun55
I may be influenced by @energyaddict22, but it gets to me how deeply the whole of Russian society has been wounded by the devastation of war. @edwardsub55 did a good job of capturing something of this.
- Planting Trees Arbor Day by @joanstewart
@joanstewart has been very instrumental in my own Steemit journey and I have been following her blog for nearly as long as I am on Steemit. Her love for nature shines through in many ways and it is very fitting that she posted about Arbor Day.
Congratulations @edwardsun55 and @joanstewart.
Please keep an eye out for my next contest. There will be four in total along these lines and under this name. And thank you again to everyone who participated.
