Enough already just finish the song.
Last year I discovered the PNC Christmas Price Index. The PNC bank totals up the cost of the gifts in the 12 days of Christmas song and they have been tracking this for 27 years now.
Their web site has an interesting fun interactive program to show you the cost and change in cost of each item in this drawn out gift giving event.
The biggest percentage increase from 2009 comes with the French Hens. A hen pecking 233% increase. The biggest dollar increase this year was for the Nine Ladies Dancing, up $820, a 15 percent boost. I always thought you could get ladies dancing for the cost of few drinks and some good music.
The total cost comes out to $23,439.38 so your true lover really need to be truly wealthy match this song.
Lately all I would want is a few plumbers piping in my house to fix a mystery leak.
