The bling: It’s that time of year when we take stock. We look at what we’ve achieved and what more we could have done. We think about family and friends, and turn our thoughts to those less fortunate than ourselves. We consider the state of the world and wonder what we can do to make it a better place. And yes, we quickly realize that we should be more proactive, more attuned to the spirit of the season, more ready to part with some of our massive stockpile of cash. After a fantastic year riding the global economy, making whoopee with the resources the Earth still holds, feeding our bellies and our pockets with the fat of the land, it’s time to get something back. Honestly, you’ve done all that you possibly could to create an atmosphere of possibility for those who are prepared to work hard and sacrifice anything and everything to get ahead. If they still can’t make a buck, that’s hardly your fault. Seriously, you’ve held true to your free market beliefs, never wavering in your worshipping of all that glitters, and you have the gold to prove it. It’s time to relax and reap your reward. And what better payback than a splash of unapologetic opulence? You deserve it, really you do. Surround yourself with all that the love of money can buy and raise a toast to humankind: Here’s to all of us. God bless us, every one.

The hidden extras: Bar, media room, indoor pool—all you need for the party season2
