The classic carol “12 Days of Christmas” is not as popular as it used to be. But still, we hear the tale of what one lucky woman gets from her true love for 12 days leading up to Christmas. But how much would all of that cost now? Spoiler: a lot!
Here is the breakdown of what the 12 Days of Christmas gifts would all cost, courtesy of PNC Christmas Price Index.
12 Drummers Drumming
their diddles better be clean and their taps down.
11 Pipers Piping
I’m not even sure what a piper does, but I’m not paying that much for it.
10 Lords A-Leaping
Are these actual lords we’re talking about?
9 Ladies Dancing
are the most expensive item on this list, so these ladies better have some killer moves with this price tag.
8 Maids A-Milking
are the least expensive item on the list, because they are considered unskilled workers and thus only receive minimum wage.
7 Swans A-Swimming
are the swans made of gold?!
6 Geese A-Laying
I guess the invest it is worth it, since they are laying eggs
5 Golden Rings
one for each finger.
4 Calling Birds
why are there so many bird options?
3 French Hens
what’s so special about the french hens that they have to cost almost $200?
2 Turtle Doves
What is a turtle dove anyway?
And a Partridge in a Pear Tree
Isn’t this really two gifts, since it’s both a bird and a tree?
In total, the 12 Days of Christmas would cost: $27,673.22
Man, I hope that girl is worth it.
