What is Winter Bash all about?

Winter Bash seems to have really taken off here and I am a newer user. Can anyone summarize everything that has been discussed over the past few days on here?

The http://winterba.sh/faq is lacking considering all the questions under the winterbash tag.


Do Things. Get Hats.

Ends January 4th.


is the only link you need.

There is no need to add that to the FAQ.

  • I want half the rep you got from this answer for creating the tag.

  • Your answer is based on the [winterbash] tag, a tag I created. You owe me half the rep you got here... (I'm trolling you Neal ;).

You can see a list of all the hats and how to get them here.

From that Q/A:

Why are you doing this to us?

For sites that have hats on by default, your moderator teams or your communities indicated that hats would be a fun, lighthearted thing to do. Why did we offer it? Because we thought it was a nice way to finish out a really amazing year. You can always decide you hate hats and turn them off.
