Across the Stack Exchange, at the end of December and start of January for the last two years, they've had virtual hats as rewards for various site participation activities.
As a site, we can choose to opt in to this Hat Dash, if we want. There will be a range of overlays
that you can add to your icon
If you yourself want to abstain, then that's ok: there will be a button that will allow you to opt out personally from the whole thing.
Should this site as a whole take part?
Update: A (small) majority is in favor so we've opted our site in. The winter bash will start at december 16th.
