I snoop around and looked at the CSS & the sprite image being used in the Winter Bash and found out there are quite a lot of hidden hats there.

Do you guys know what those other hats are and what the requirements are needed?

These aren't hidden hats. The hidden hats have their own images, like this one:

Those are just there to troll folks looking for hidden hats. Hence the troll icons. Cage is also trolling you, like he always does:

Nice one Manishearth! How many more hidden hats are there? Anyone knows of a wiki page setup somewhere they collected all of these badges/hats? – fedmich Dec 23 '12 at 13:24
@fedmich: I think I have all but the Epic Punyon. Click the snowflake on my profile to find these hats. (I've circled them here). As for figuring out how to get a hat, if you can find the image URL of the hat, it's easy after that. – Manishearth Dec 23 '12 at 13:33
