I noticed that one user has a cool pirate hat. However, there is no description of what's required to get a hat like that on the winter bash page. Are there "secret" hats, or is this one given out on other SE sites?

If you click on the user's avatar on their profile page, you can see their hat collection. If you hover over the pirate hat, a little description offers a hint:

Shiver me timbers! I tried clicking it, but did not try hovering over! Thanks! – dasblinkenlight Dec 20 '12 at 3:10
@dasblinkenlight On Stack Exchange, when in doubt, there's likely a tooltip :P – Aarthi Dec 20 '12 at 3:11

If you know the name of the hat and want a more detailed description, you can go to http://winterba.sh and add the name in the URL, hyphenated and in lowercase.

For the pirate hat you're asking about: http://winterba.sh/shiver-me-timbers

Of course, this won't work if you don't know the hat's name. :)
