Did you know that if you were to buy all 364 items in the “12 Days of Christmas” song, it would cost you $86,608?? That is according to PNC Bank’s annual Christmas Price Index Report. For the past twenty four years, PNC has been mimicking the Bureau of Labor Statistic’s Consumer Price Index, which measures inflation, to make their annual report charting the price differences of the 12 items in the song from the previous year. The seven swans a-swimming alone will cost you $5,600!
