What is Winter Bash all about?

Winter Bash seems to have really taken off here and I am a newer user. Can anyone summarize everything that has been discussed over the past few days on here?

The http://winterba.sh/faq is lacking considering all the questions under the winterbash tag.

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.

  • Do good things on site
  • Get hats
  • Show hat to others
  • Have fun
  • Hate having 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
