When I open winterbash2014.stackexchange.com I get

The Q&A site winterbash2014.stackexchange.com doesn't seem to exist…yet.

This is the same message as when I visit unicorns.stackexchange.com:

The Q&A site unicorns.stackexchange.com doesn't seem to exist…yet.

When I open winterbash2013.stackexchange.com, I see a wonderful message about hats, among other things:

Stack Exchange invites you to celebrate the end of a great year …with HATS!

Please start Winter Bash 2014! :D (And let us know how long we will have to earn hats)

    I would consider non-existence of unicorns.se to be more serious bug. And winterbash2014.se really doesn't exist... yet. Sure it will be :)

    Is this a request to start Winterbash 2014... ? It's already planned to start at some point in the near future, I presume. It just hasn't yet. I don't think a request is needed to remind SE to start the event they planned, though.

    @JasonC Maybe not, but we're allowed to have fun on meta, if I'm not mistaken.

    @Mooseman The hat-related free-rep thread is already here: meta.stackexchange.com/questions/244009/… I don't think we really need any more.

    unicorns.se is a super secret site that you aren't privileged to. Only verified owners of a unicorn get to see that page. Sorry. Get yourself a unicorn. ;)

    Just putting my seal of authenticity on this answer. The site won't be up until Winter Bash 2014 actually begins.

  • @Laura well, it is up now with a cool countdown. Was it a last minute decision? (adding a countdown) Dec 12 '14 at 10:18
  • Next year can we make sure we don't make those in the southern hemisphere feel left out? Dec 12 '14 at 15:11
  • @ShadowWizard yeah, that was a spontaneous decision by balpha. :)
