I would like to know what winter hats are all about.

Do they add any reputation or badges later?

I'm excited about these winter hats.

    Why the down-votes? I've seen too much discussion on winter hats, and the answer below is the first explanation i've seen. BTW, i think they're a stupid idea!

From Winter Bash 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.
