Songkran Festival badges not working - Update! They are working now!

I'm getting many reports that the Songkran Festival badges are not being awarded and no reports from anyone that got them. Garmin has probably messed up in some way. I've checked the start and end date for the badges and they are correct, but those dates seems just to be used for making the badges visible in Garmin Connect: "badgeStartDate":"2021-04-13T00:00:00.0","badgeEndDate":"2021-04-15T23:59:59.0" My tip is to just continue trying for the next two days. Maybe it will work tomorrow. Update I did a test and moved my activities to year 2019 and I got the badges. Year 2020 didn't work since Songkran Festival was cancelled that year due to the pandemic. Update 2 The badges are working now!
