The 12 Days of Christmas List Tops 100 Grand

PNC Wealth Management is out with their 12 Days of Christmas itemized list that totals the cost for all items mentioned in the song.  SmartMoney Magazine has the story…

Inflation doesn’t stop for true love. Or even one measly partridge, according to a new survey of the list of goodies named in the song, “The 12 Days of Christmas.” For the first time, the cost for the items on that list tops $100,000, according to PNC Wealth Management’s 28th annual index.

The index, like the song, calculates the total cumulative price-tag of items gifted by a True Love in the song’s verses. The entire list costs exactly $101,119.84, a 4.4% increase on last year, the study found. A big reason for the increase, says James Dunigan, managing executive of investments for PNC Wealth Management: Commodity prices are nearing record highs.

The rest is a slideshow of each item and the cost but it clicks through fast and ad-free, check it out below.
