How much would it cost to purchase all the items mentioned in The Twelve Days Of Christmas?
This year the Christmas Price Index, calculated annually by PNC Wealth Management, rose 6.1 percent over last year hitting a whopping $107,000.
With Turtle Doves and Partridges getting scarcer there may not be many more years left to purchase 364 items listed in the holiday classic.
In case you’re planning on giving your ‘true love’ the 12 days, here’s a refresher of the items:
12 Drummers Drumming
11 Pipers Piping
9 Ladies Dancing
5 Gold Rings
4 Colly Birds/Calling Birds
3 French Hens
