So, according to it's description, to get the Rudolf hat you need to "Accept an answer on a new question".

I have been awarded the hat for moving my accept on the question How do I break a stack of objects? from an old obsolete answer, to a new up to date one.

This isn't a new question and does feel a little bit of a cheating way to get the hat.

Anyway, now you all know so either (a) it can be fixed or (b) everyone can get themselves a free hat.

    Terrible injustice, of course... free hat, you say?

This is fixed, so only people who asked questions during Hat Dash are eligible for the Rudolph Hat now. In the spirit of Christmas, the ~50 "undeserving" Rudolph Hat earners will get to keep their hats.
