Some families' Christmas traditions entail the whole crew singing the "12 Days of Christmas" until everyone is exhausted. PNC Wealth Management uses the age-old song in a whole different way; they track the cost of the 12 items to calculate the Christmas Price Index. The index takes into account prices for everything from calling birds to French hens, and according to a PNC executive, "This year's PNC Christmas Price Index again reflects the patterns in the broader economy."
This year, the total cost to buy all the named in the song is $87,402.81. Can you guess how much things like 12 drummers drumming actually cost?
