This is a Friday International Borders puzzle.
What’s with this weird clue layout? And… 5 colors? This looks like a holiday gift gone wrong…

That was a cute and timely puzzle. Kinda tough, but I’m not the most experienced at these.
It is a Friday puzzle of a type I don’t post too much of, and I know you’re not the only one that had trouble with it. Glad you enjoyed it and thanks for the comment.
At first I was wondering if the clues were supposed to be in the shape of a gift with a bow or something.
Then I solved it, and everything made sense
The interaction between the regions in the bottom right actually threw me off until I realized that a black square can separate two squares in the same region… under very special circumstances.
By the way, BRAVO. You should be proud of this one.
I am. Glad you enjoyed it too.
I seem to be getting a very quick contradiction.
Doesn’t the configuration near the purple cricle force the 2 to be purple, or else the purple dot is either trapped or the square above the 3 is black and useless, and then there is no way to resolve the 1 sandwiched between 3 colors??
There is no rule saying a region has to contain two or more grid squares.
