Another year is hurtling towards its end; and winter will bring all kinds of things to all kinds of people. To the more affluent, it will provide the opportunity to dress up in the season’s latest fashions, to give lavish Christmas presents to their families and each other, and to defy the climate with merry-making; wardrobes and drinks cabinets alike will be replete.
