Last year SP.SE participated in Winter Bash, which lets our users earn and wear hats on their user profile image. You earn hats through participation in asking questions, answering questions, getting up-votes, voting, commenting and sharing to mention a few things. Exactly the same things you’re doing here to earn reputation and badges. But there is a twist, you don’t know what will earn hats. Suddenly, it just appears in a hat-gallery where you can pick the hat of the day. It’s all up to you, hat or no hat. You can chose not to wear any of earned hats. This event is a way of celebrating the many amazing people who make this site awesome.
So, we’re announcing Winter Bash 2013!

This event will run from 16 December 2013 to 3 January 2014. Users will be able to see their entire hat collection on http://winterbash2013.stackexchange.com/. That site will also have a landing page, explaining the rules and other details of the event.
But we need to make a decision no later than Saturday November 30 to participate or not. Simply put;
Do we want hats?
It's clear that we want hats, so we have submitted the form to participate in Winter Bash 2013.
