What a Bargain!

The Washington Post reported this morning that Bishop Franz-Peter Tebartz-van Elst, the German “Bishop of Bling,” resigned over findings that he spent $43 million dollars renovating his residence. The article details some of his expenditures, including $300K for a koi pond and $2.38 million for brass window casings.

But the one that stood out most to me was $25K – 25 THOUSAND DOLLARS – to hang an Advent wreath. I’m now thinking I’ve seriously underpriced the Advent calendars in my Etsy shop (of course, you don’t need a crane to hang these!)
