According to the annual Christmas Price Index compiled by PNC Wealth Management, if you were to buy every item mentioned in “The Twelve Days of Christmas,” you would have to fork out nearly $100,000.

(Trying to buy the 364 items repeated in all the song’s verses β€” from 12 drummers drumming to a partridge in a pear tree β€” would cost $96,824, an increase of 10.8 percent over 2009.  That’s inflation for you.)
