Good news! The Winter Bash has started!

Will WB.SE be participating this year?

    $\begingroup$ Better question: How did I end up getting the "Quarantine Hair" hat? It only says it's a secret hat. $\endgroup$ Commented Dec 17, 2020 at 0:35
  • $\begingroup$ @Mephistopheles I agree; it randomly showed up in my hat collection, and I can't find what it's for. $\endgroup$ Commented Dec 17, 2020 at 1:04

This year there was no consultancy to see which sites wanted in or out.

It's a personal decision - if you don't want to play, you can click on the "No Hats For Me" link at the bottom corner of the popup that appears if you click on the snowflake icon.


Considering that I just earned the Social Distancing hat mask here on Meta, it appears that we are.
