How much would the 12 Days of Christmas really cost? If you actually wanted to purchase every item listed in the song, preferably for your true love, what would it set you back?
For the past 35 years, PNC Bank has calculated the real cost of all the gifts listed in the Christmas classic tune. According to them, the total for all the items in 2018 is a whopping $170,609.46! Feeling more conservative? A mere $181 is all three French hens will run you, while almost $400 will bring in those infamous turtle doves.
Personally though, I would go for the five gold rings! Who wouldn't like to unwrap a set of golden rings on Christmas morning?!
