Cost Of 12 Days Of Christmas!!
It’s going to set you back more than 100 thousand dollars to buy everything on the list of items from the 12 Days of Christmas song. Here’s the price breakdown.
The 364 items repeated across all the song’s verses would cost $101,119. That’s up 4.4 percent over last year.
Eleven pipers piping will set you back $2,427.
Seven swans-a-swimming, which cost $6,300. That’s a 12.5 percent rise over last year.
The price of eight maids-a-milking at minimum wage was $58 — the same as last year.
Five gold rings even declined a bit to $645, from $650 last year.
The high cost of shipping live birds explains some of the difference.
Six items didn’t go up in cost this year: French hens, calling birds, gold rings, maids-a-milking, ladies dancing and lords-a-leaping. Pipers piping and drummers drumming rose 3 percent. The partridge is still the cheapest item, at $15, and swans the most expensive.
