I just got awarded the "Winter Is Coming" hat - it's still the 19th? The hat is for the 20th!
What is going on?

Oh, it's already December 20th 02:27 AM in Kiritimati.
And as stated here:
we over-awarded the hat so that people in Auckland / Tokyo / Shanghai / Vanuatu wouldn't have to wait until their midday to receive it.
...and later on:
This behavior will also occur for the other hats that are date-sensitive
This was in Winter Bash 2012 but can't see any reason to change the behavior in 2013. :)
