Every year around this time, there’s a Wealth Management company that calculates how much it would cost to buy all the stuff from “The Twelve Days of Christmas”, and this year, it’ll cost you pretty much what it would’ve cost you last year. If you’d bought all the stuff. Which you didn’t. Because you’re not romantic. Or crazy…
The total this year is $34,131 . . . that’s just 0.6% higher than last year, when it was $33,933.
Only three of the 12 items had price jumps this year: A partridge in a pear tree is 3.5% more expensive . . . two turtle doves are up 11.5% . . . and 10 lords-a-leaping will cost 3% more. Apparently demand for old jumping men has slightly gone up?
The most expensive thing on the list is the seven swans-a-swimming. They’ll run $13,125 . . . or $1,875 per swan.
