The Winter Bash 2013 page indicates "the hats get put back in their boxes on January 4th". Aside from the pure terror that sentence seems to invoke, I was curious of exactly when this is going to be.
I know that the hats have caused a bit of a time warp at times (for example the starred chat hats). Will this be true of the removal process as well?
Do we get our hats until 23:39 UTC Jan 4th, are they removed at the end of UTC Jan 3rd?
