12 Days Of Christmas 2010 Cost

Every year the people with the big brains and the calculators figure out just how much the so-called “12 Days of Christmas” would cost to purchase for your “true love”.

According to PNC Wealth Management (who has carried on the tradition of tallying up the cost for the past 27 years) this year is extra expensive pushing $100,000, driven partially by the high cost of gold prices in 2010. Gold isn’t the most expensive item though… the nine ladies dancing are. This year we’re pushing $100,000

Some of the items on the list did not go up this year though – the pear tree (without the partridge) four calling birds, six geese, and the eight maids-a-milking.

If you bought everything listed in the song, you’d by purchasing 364 items (12 drummers drumming, a partridge AND a pear tree, etc) Total cost for 2010 is a 10.8% increase over last year – $96,824!!!

Here’s how the list breaks down:

One Partridge in a Pear Tree: $161.99
Two Turtle Doves: $100
Three French Hens: $150
Four Calling Birds: $599.96
Five Gold Rings: $649.95
Six Geese-a-Laying: $150
Seven Swans-a-Swimming: $5,600
Eight Maids-a-Milking: $58
Nine Ladies Dancing: $6,294.03
10 Lords-a-Leaping: $4,766.70
11 Pipers Piping: $2,356.20
12 Drummers Drumming: $2,552.55

By the way –  the 12 Days of Christmas happen to be AFTER Christmas! December 26th is the first day (Boxing Day or The Feast of St. Stephen) and the 12 days run through Epiphany (The 12th day.)
