On the Winter Bash 2018 page I read that Winter Bash will end on January 2nd:

the hats get put back in their boxes on January 2nd!

Earlier years Winter Bash has ended on January 4th:

the hats get put back in their boxes on January 4th!

How is the end date for Winter Bash chosen?

  • Yes, on January 2nd you will no longer be able to wear your hat! Which makes the Glasses With A Number On Top something that only lasts for a maximum of, I think, 18 or so hours. 8-( – SlySven Jan 2 at 23:04

Well, generally Winter Bash lasts about three weeks, and starts either on Monday or Wednesday (see the list below, partially compiled by @rene in a now-deleted answer). If it starts as early as this year, it'll end early as well.

I can't imagine it ends before January 1st, so it'll probably shift next year, but ultimately, it's the Stack Exchange team who decides this.
