My question is simply that, what are secret hats? I have seen many users with hats not listed in the winter bash page, the hats' description say “this is a secret hat”. In fact most of the what's I have seen so far are secret hats, what does this mean?

I even just earned the fascinating secret hat and still have no idea what it means!?!


The secret hats are just hats, like any of the other hats on the winter page, except Stack Exchange did not give the instructions on how to get them.

There is a growing list of spoilers for the secret hats on http://meta.stackexchange.com.
