12 Days of Christmas items cost nears $100,000


WATERLOO (KWWL) -- The price you would pay to purchase all the items in "The Twelve Days of Christmas" song is up more than 10% from last year.

The total cost of all 364 items in the song, as reported by PNC Wealth Management, adds up to $96,824.  That includes everything from 12 drummers drumming to a partridge in a pear tree.

The 27th annual holiday index has historically mirrored the national Consumer Price Index, but not this year. The PNC Christmas Price Index grew 9.2 percent from last year, compared with just a 1.1 percent increase in the much broader Consumer Price Index.
