How much would it cost to buy everything from the "12 Days of Christmas"?


It Would Cost You $27,393 to Buy Everything From the "12 Days of Christmas"
 
I'm sure there's SOMEONE out there who's thinking, "It might be really cool if I bought all the stuff from 'The 12 Days of Christmas' this year.  I guess I'm off to the strip club to find nine ladies dancing."
 
PNC Financial just released their annual study on what it would cost to buy everything from the song.  And this year, you'd have to spend . . . $27,393.17.  That's up 7.7% from last year, when it cost $25,431.18.
 
But that's only the price if you buy everything ONCE.  Technically, if you want to go by the song, every day you have to RE-BUY everything from previous days.  
 
Like, on day three, you'd give three French hens . . . but also two more turtle doves and another partridge in a pear tree.
 
So if you follow it that way, you'd spend $114,651.18.
 
The cost increase this year comes from a 10% rise in the price of hiring 10 lords-a-leaping . . . apparently men who can jump are at a premium in late 2013?  Also, the price of four calling birds is up 15.4% and nine ladies dancing is up 20%.
