cost of 12 days

Ever wonder what the actual cost is for some of the unique gifts in the classic “12 Days of Christmas” carol? Seriously, how much could a partridge in a pear tree really cost? Well, this year, it's $214.99. And those seven swans? Yeah, um, that’ll set you back $13,125, according to the PNC Christmas Price Index®.

Every year, PNC Financial Services Group calculates each of the 12 Days of Christmas gifts and their respective prices. An interactive infographic also shows consumers the price of the gifts compared to prior years' prices (starting in 1984). And as you can imagine, the price tag just keeps getting bigger. All said and done, the gifts in the song will set you back a whopping $34,130.99 this year. (That’s only .6 percent up from last year.)
