Winter Bash hats delay
I think I qualify for some hats which have not yet been rewarded. Are hats supposed to come instantaneously upon qualification, or is there a certain time when your hats are re-evaluated?

The hat script (close relative to the badge script), is not instantaneous as you have noticed. It takes 5-10 minute to show up. By the time you are finished reading this you'll probably already have your new head-gear*.
