Winter / Summer Bash 2022 just started today, and within the first hour, nearly a million hats have been awarded across the network.

Let's show them off here! As with the 2021 edition, I'll copy the same text from the 2017 edition:

Post hats, hats, and more hats! Those that you're especially proud of, or that you simply look good in - all are welcome ;)

    If Community gets the bounty, will it have 301 rep?

    I mean can Community get the bounty since its rep is fixed to 1

Is it too matchy-matchy?

The community user wearing the I Voted hat, which looks like a boater in the same colors as the logo of the avatar for the bot.

    There has been an AI invasion across the network. Maybe Community was infected by it.

    So this is a "hat"? Am I wrong all this time? I've been taught that this particular thing is called "Glasses". Is this a new lingo for ESL such as myself to learn? Curious...

    @Alvi15 I'm not sure if there's been a post about that, but I guess they generalized the notion of "hat" to "headgear" and "avatar decoration". Dec 15, 2022 at 4:57

    At least more consistent than TF2 where "hats" includes even shoes and backpacks.

KEKE HAS FLAGS.

...and they kind of look like scary teeth on him.

KEKE HAS TEETH!

KEKE HAS FLAGS

...or a crown?

KEKE IS KING!

The cookie takes revenge on the ones who ate it.

A bitten crescent-shaped chocolate chip cookie is posed to bite the heads of two small children, similar to Pac Man eating one of the ghosts.

    @V2Blast it helps that Bella_Blue has one of the most artful avatars I've seen on the network. If I'm not mistaken it's a caricature and from the artistic choices of proportion and color I'd say it was done by a professional - as an artwork the caricature is nothing short of amazing.

    I had been wanting to know who the character in your avatar is ever since you were appointed CM, so this post comes as a nice reveal -it's Shizuo and now I'm gonna have to watch an episode of the series featuring him 😃 Dec 23, 2022 at 7:43

    @bad_coder: Yep! I've had him in my profile picture for probably over a decade at this point (across various sites). He's one of my favorite characters in Durarara!! – very kind to those who deserve it, and very protective if anyone ever crosses the people he cares about.

Is that a moon of Saturn, is it a cookie that's trying to eat Saturn, or did Saturn eat some of the cookie?

Ok, now we have discovered a new moon going around Saturn.

Back in my day, it was ok for Saturn to smoke a pipe.
