I have just got an invitation, asking if our site if we want to participate.

In a nutshell (quoting from the email):

Winter Bash is an annual event that can run on any Stack Exchange site that chooses to participate. Users earn “hats” for their gravatars by completing certain tasks (analogous to badges). Certain actions trigger the user receiving a hat, which their gravatar can “wear”. We track everyone’s progress earning hats in a leaderboard

You can find more if you search for it.

Personally I have never seen the point of this even though I'm aware it's simply a bit of fun. I suppose in this case though, it would be good to show our participation in StackExchange.

So yes, would be a good idea to accept it.

    @DavidFritsch - Meh...no downside. I've simply found the concept rather pointless, that's all.
