What is the Real Cost of the 12 Days of Christmas?

Joel Anderson |

Every year, the good people PNC Financial Services Group ($PNC) put together data on just how much it would cost to buy all 12 of the gifts from the famous Christmas carol "The 12 Days of Christmas." Needless to say, it's expensive and getting pricier each year. Aside from the fact that "maids-a-milking" or "lords-a-leaping" should, by law, not be something you can purchase, the price for 2014 at $27,673.22. That's a mere 1% increase over 2013, when things had spiked in price by 7.7%. Here's a quick look at the breakdown provided by PNC.
