@BhuvanRikka - No it's not a bug. It's correct information. – hims056 Dec 19 '12 at 13:04
Okay... Sorry.. – Bhuvan Rikka 웃 Dec 19 '12 at 13:04
Im still wondering of l'chaim is the right greeting for Chanukkah. And the hat should almost certainly been in the shape of a donut! – Jamiec Dec 19 '12 at 13:13
What does this hat look like? I mean, I got it (on another site) but I can't see any difference in my avatar. – Mr Lister Dec 19 '12 at 13:26

It's retrospective.

If you didn't post on December 16th you can't win the hat.

So, slightly easier to get than the precognitive badge on SO, at least! – ecatmur Dec 19 '12 at 13:26
