Fun Fact Friday December 20, 2019

20 December 2019


If you think a $2500 Pelton is an expensive Christmas gift, brace yourself. Buying all the gifts in the classic holiday carol, “The 12 Days of Christmas,” will set you back $170,298.03, according to the 2019 Christmas Price Index from PNC Financial Services Group.  The bill, though, is up a modest $67.56 from 2018.   “Despite the stock market hitting record highs recently, it is a welcome gift for the holidays that the PNC Christmas Price Index stayed relatively flat this year,” said Amanda Agati, chief investment strategist for PNC Asset Management Group, in a press release. The annual index calculates the tab for what it would cost to buy all 364 gifts that are repeated in the verses that includes all 12 drummers drumming and, of course, a partridge in a pear tree, a gift that is received on all 12 days.  If you’re looking for a bargain buy, the cheapest item is a partridge at $20.18. The partridge and the pear tree don’t come as a package deal, and the tree will cost you $189.99.  The gift that will set you back the furthest: seven swans a swiming for an eye-watering $13,125.
