What do hats get me after January 4th?

I love my hat! How long could I keep it? Is it a permanent system (which I want)?

I had thought that I could save my image with the hat and set as a whole image, but the hat exceeds the bounds.

The hats will all disappear. Enjoy them now, while they are here! Carpe Petasus! – Martijn Pieters Dec 30 '12 at 10:32

From the FAQ

What happens after January 4th?

After January 4th, the sites go back to normal and all hats disappear. This is meant to be a fun end-of-year celebration, not a permanent addition to the site.
