Press: 'Twelve Days of Christmas' gets costly - AP

"While the origins of the Christmas carol 'The Twelve Days of Christmas' may be a mystery, one thing is certain: It's getting more costly to buy your true love all the items mentioned.

"It would cost $78,100 to buy the 364 items, from a single partridge in a pear tree to the 12 drummers drumming, repeatedly on each day as the song suggests, according to the annual PNC Christmas Price Index compiled by PNC Wealth Management. The cost is up 4 percent from $75,122 last year."

(The kicker is that milkmaids, who experienced a salary boost this year, now make more than I do!)
