How Much Would The Items in Twelve Days of Christmas Cost?Category: Entertainment
Having a hard time thinking of what gifts to buy to make your “true love” happy on Christmas?
Well, look no further as the carol Twelve Days of Christmas lyrics lists a series of gifts that you can give on each of the twelve days of Christmas: one partridge in a pear tree, two turtledoves, three French hens, four calling birds, five golden rings, six geese-a-laying, seven swans-a-swimming, eight maids-a-milking, nine ladies dancing, 10 lords-a-leaping, 11 pipers piping and 12 drummers drumming.
If you’re asking, “how much would each of the items in the 12 Days of Christmas cost?”, be prepared to break your bank.
Since 1984, U.S. bank PNC Financial Services tracks the cost of the items in the carol The Twelve Days of Christmas as some sort of tongue-in-cheek economic indicator that came to be known as the Christmas Price Index.
The Christmas Price Index was conceived by the bank’s chief economist as a humorous commodity price index to measure the changing cost of goods in the carol over time.
This year, buying each of the items will set you back $23,439.38. That’s 9.2% higher than last year’ s $21,465.56.
Now, if money is not an issue and you would want to be more extravagant, you can buy all 364 items as mentioned in all the song’s verses for $96,824.
The most expensive item on the list is $6,294.03 to hire nine ladies dancing while the cheapest is $12 for one patridge.
