Streak freeze questions

When you buy a streak freeze, does it just sit there until you use it? What if you get it, and then the next day you miss a day? Does it automatically activate and hold your streak??

It is like you've banked it, you have it in storage for a rainy day. It will stave off the inevitable for one day. :)

All About Streak Freezes

1Q. When you buy a streak freeze, does it just sit there until you use it?

1A: After you buy a Streak Freeze, it says "Equipped" and is saved until you need to use it. (I feel you; I was so scared it wouldn't just sit there but hit "Get for: 10 lingots" anyway)

2Q. What if you get it, and then the next day you miss a day? Does it automatically activate and hold your streak??

2A: Yes. It will activate automatically and save your streak.

<BONUS>

3Q. Can I buy it on the day I use it?

3A: I believe so. I did it once. It was equipped, then used.
