How Much Would ’12 Days of Christmas’ Cost You Today?

If you would get all 364 items repeated throughout “The Twelve Days of Christmas” song, you’ll pay 6.1 percent more this year, according to the so-called Christmas Price Index that PNC Wealth Management updates annually. That comes to $107,300. Uh..wow.

Thrifty shoppers may find some reasons for cheer. Six items mentioned in the song haven’t gone up in price: maids-a-milking, ladies dancing, lords-a-leaping, calling birds, turtle doves and the partridge. The eight maids-a-milking still cost just $58 because the minimum wage hasn’t risen. Well, I don’t know if that’s a good thing, or a bad thing….

Check out how much the cost has gone up on all the items in the classic Christmas carol, and just be glad you’re not trying to find 6 maids-a-milking this Christmas!

Fa la la la la la la la la!
