12 Days of Christmas (Mashup) – How much will it cost you?

In 2012 we did a video showing the cost of the 12 days of christmas. Here is that video.

In 2012 The verses of the holiday song “The 12 Days of Christmas” add up to 364 gifts, and  would cost around $107,300 if you bought them all. Watch this video mashup, of Lady Gaga, Muppets, Relient K, Chipmunks, Bing Crosby and others singing the 12 days of Christmas and showing you the cost per day for all the gifts of the song.

Of course a year later prices have changed. Here is the info from PNC talking about the changes for this year.

BAH, HUMBUG! PNC CHRISTMAS PRICE INDEX SURGES 7.7 PERCENT IN 2013; PRICES WOULD CAUSE EBENEZER SCROOGE TO CRINGE

- Marking 30th Year of Holiday Tradition, PNC CPI has increased 116 Percent Since 1984; but Average Annual Increase Identical to U.S. Inflation -

PITTSBURGH, Dec. 2, 2013 – A steadily improving economy helped prompt a 7.7 percent boost in the 2013 PNC Christmas Price Index®, the 30th annual tongue-in-cheek economic analysis by PNC Wealth Management.

Based on the array of gifts in the holiday classic, “The Twelve Days of Christmas,” the price tag for the PNC CPI is $27,393.17 in 2013, $1,192 more than last year and the largest increase since 2010 when the index jumped 9.2 percent.
