Would you please give me a hint?
I already gave you a bunch! There is a hint in the title of the puzzle, in each section number, in the instruction in each section, and even in the solution to Part II. Here’s another hint: THEY’RE ALL THE SAME HINT.
Would you please give me another hint?
The image at the top of the page contains a big, easily visible hint.
Would you please give me yet another hint?
This puzzle was released on a thematically-important minor holiday.

I'm in the right place, so what am I looking for?
