12 Days of Christmas goes over $100,000

Friday, December 23, 2011 5:51 PM

PITTSBURGH, Dec. 23 (UPI) -- You can buy the gifts of the 12 days of Christmas from a partridge in a pear tree to 12 drummers drumming for $101,000, an annual Christmas "price guide" says.

The "price tag" for all 364 items and services in each of the song's verses breaks $100,000 for the first time this year, the Christmas Price Index released for the 28th year by PNC Wealth Management, part of the PNC Financial Services Group, said.

The prices included nine ladies dancing at $6,294 and 11 pipers piping at $2,427.60.

The prices are fairly stable and not rising precipitously for even the more expensive gifts, just 3.5 percent last year, in line with the federal government's Consumer Price Index, which increased 3.4 percent this year for the everyday items used by today's consumer.

And some prices have fallen, like gold -- as in five golden rings -- which will cost you $645, down from $650 last year.

And if you can't afford the $2,629.90 for the 12 drummers drumming, there's always that partridge -- although that's up this year to $15.

And that pear tree will run you $169.
