Found this discussion How many secret hats are there for WinterBash 2013? from 2013 which @TimPost revealed the secret number was 42.

How many secret hats are there for Winter Bash 2018 and do we have a list of the triggers for the secret hats?

    If you're referring to the comment, that was a joke. It's a reference to Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, not the actual number of hats from that year. We don't reveal the number of hats each year. – animuson Dec 13 '18 at 2:56

    @animuson I beg to differ. (I didn't dig in other years, but this proves SE team does sometimes reveal the numbers and even give hints.) – ShaWiz Dec 13 '18 at 8:04

That's not revealed; there will be a blog post at the end of the Winter Bash that would sum up all the hats.

But if the past is of any indication:

  • 2012: 8
  • 2013: 10
  • 2014: 8
  • 2015: 13
  • 2016: 13
  • 2017: 10
  • 2018: at least 9
