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

enter image description here

What is going on?

    You should get the Link to the future hat for that (if there is one).

    Small tip from own experience: always save screenshots in .png format and not .jpg and you'll have much better quality. :) Dec 19 '13 at 12:35

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. :)
