It's nearly December, and Winter Bash is almost upon us.
For anyone not familiar with it, Winter Bash is an end-of-the-year celebration on Stack Exchange, where users can earn "hats" to wear on their profile pictures by doing certain things.
Each site can choose whether or not to participate. However, unless there is a large consensus against participating, the site will automatically participate. Individual users who don't want to participate, don't want to see hats, and/or are generally anti-hat will have an "I hate hats" option available. And just like last time, at the end of the event, all hats will go back into storage.
Winter Bash will run from December 19th through January 8th. Users will be able to see all the hats they've earned on winterbash2016.stackexchange.com.
So what do we say? Do we want hats this year?
