2010’s 12 days of Christmas now more expensive

In our 2008 Holiday article, the items on the 12 days of Christmas song would have cost $86,609 dollars.  This year, it has gotten more expensive.

According to the annual Christmas Price Index compiled by PNC Wealth Management, the 364 items on the Christmas Song List would cost $96,824 this year.

This year’s high inflation due to low rates brought gold to a high of $1390, which pushed the cost of five gold rings up 30 percent to $649.95

Only four of the 12 gifts in the song didn’t go up in price from last year: the pear tree ($149, not including the partridge), four calling birds ($599.96), six geese ($150) and the eight maids-a-milking ($58).

The most expensive item on the list was $6,294.03 to hire nine ladies dancing, a 15 percent increase from last year. The cheapest was $12 for one patridge, a 20 percent increase.
