Today's Cost Of The Twelve Days Of Christmas
" BOSTON (CBS) – In the Christmas poem The 12 Days of Christmas, this guy wants to impress his true love with gifts between Christmas and the Epiphany (January 6th). According to the PNC Wealth Management Christmas Price Index it would cost him $25,431, up almost 5% from last year.  A good example of what inflation can do to your Christmas budget.

I’m going to do the 12 days of Christmas much cheaper!

A partridge in a pear tree cost, $205. Stick a branch in some dirt in a flowerpot, get online with Amazon and buy the Partridge Family Christmas CD for $6.

2 Turtle Doves cost, $125. Get two bars of Dove chocolate for $5.

3 French Hens are going for $165, but you can get Perdue hens on sale for 99 cents a pound and cook them in a French casserole for $12.

4 Calling birds at $520. According to my research, they are Colly birds, which are just plain old black birds. Buy The White Album by the Beatles that has the song Blackbird on it for $18 at Amazon "
