It looks like the wealthy had a white diamond Christmas. No dirty coal in their stockings.
Of course no coal in the stockings of the working peonage either. All that got chucked into the fireplace when their Utilities were shut off due failure to pay bills.

Tiffany & Co. reported that its worldwide net sales in the two-month holiday period ended December 31, 2010 rose 11% over the prior year.
Michael J. Kowalski, chairman and chief executive officer, said, “We are very pleased with this worldwide sales growth, and with the increases we saw in every region in both months of the holiday period. Healthy sales growth was seen across most product categories, with particular strength in Tiffany’s fine jewelry collections, diamond engagement rings and fashion gold jewelry, although with limited growth in silver jewelry sales.”
Billionaires need pretty, expensive things. Beautiful things for their beautiful minds. It’s simple really, just ask yourself: Which of these pictures does a better job of putting you in the holiday spirit?
