This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

This is a dup of everything. That's got to be some kind of record. – Chris Gerken Dec 20 '12 at 19:14

Your answer is based on the [winterbash] tag, a tag I created. You owe me half the rep you got here... (I'm trolling you Neal ;). – Yannis Dec 20 '12 at 20:06
@Yannis lol lucky. – amanaP lanaC A nalP A naM A Dec 20 '12 at 20:07

You can see a list of all the hats and how to get them here.

From that Q/A:

Why are you doing this to us?

For sites that have hats on by default, your moderator teams or your communities indicated that hats would be a fun, lighthearted thing to do. Why did we offer it? Because we thought it was a nice way to finish out a really amazing year. You can always decide you hate hats and turn them off.

  • Show hat to others
  • Have fun

Only a few days in the year. So enjoy. – Toon Krijthe Dec 20 '12 at 19:05
@aman You can have fun, you are just required to hate it at the same time. – Josh Caswell Dec 20 '12 at 19:36
