Don't forget to get a streak freeze! (Or check that you still have one.)
Holidays happen all the time. Emergencies and forgetfulness as well. If you are invested in keeping your streak, don't forget to equip a streak freeze now.
How does Streak freeze work?
Streak freeze works by automatically engaging once it realizes that you have missed your daily goal. It holds your streak in place for one day cycle. But, you have to have it equipped before hand. Once your streak freeze is used up, you'll need to get a new one.
A common belief: I must know in advance when I'll need the streak and equip it the day before. This belief is in error. You can equip your streak freeze hours, days, months, or even years in advance of when you'll need it. That's the beauty of having a streak freeze. It works just as good for planned breaks as unplanned ones.
Don't forget to check your streak freeze now and then. Often, we can miss a day without noticing. Our streak freezes get used, and we go on believing that we still have a streak freeze when we don't. So check it now and then to make sure it's equipped.

Great post on streak freezes, Usagiboy07. Streak freezes are truly amazing and are there for you whenever you need them. Although find myself forgetting to use them every now and then xD.
the BIG bunny picture is what i'm talking about.. Unless they are rabbits.... ;P
xD i'm glad. I wouldn't want invisible bunnies roaming around Duolingo.
sorry, its just normal for me to put Usagiboy07 cause most people have that "0" in there. xD!
I have a question : If we bought a streak freeze a long time ago (For my case it's been at least 50 days that I didn't buy one because I didn't use mine) will it be bugged ? I've seen some comments about that situation but never knew if it is true.
Also wouldn't be a good idea to receive a notification saying that our streak freeze was used ?
Streak freezes don't degrade over time. On very rare occasions, one will bug out. But that could be the day after someone equips it just as easily as 50 days. Most often when people report that their Streak freeze has not worked is when they've actually used it, and not noticed and then taken a day off without a freeze equipped. They come back to a missing streak. This is why it is important to check to make sure you still have one equipped, in case you missed a day without noticing. Some people check theirs daily. Some only check theirs just before a planned day off. It's a good habit.
yeah, but unfortunately, That will happen every week because I am very busy on the weekends.
I have mine set at 1 also. I do way more than that, but or me I see no reason to set it higher. I do this for fun. I guess I really just should not be concerned about the streak at all, but I have 192 days and would just hate to lose it. With it set at 1, If I can get on the computer at all I can maintain it. And I do have streak freeze just it case.
I was starting to wonder if I was the only one that had it set to 1.
hmm, interesting. I have mine set at 50 XP because it encourages me to do more per day. But on the weekends i have no time to do Duolingo.
