Hopefully this is the right place to ask:
Does activity on stack exchange increase during the Winter Bash?
I'm guessing this possible using http://data.stackexchange.com, but I couldn't find any existing query across all sites that would do it. I'd think the mother-ship would know the answer.
"Activity" is open to interpretation, but I was thinking of any of the following:
- # of site visits (breakdown by return vs. new to normalize)
- # of questions asked
- # of questions answered
- # of questions edits
- # of votes (breakdown by up and down might be interesting)
- # of comments
