The “12 Days of Christmas” Now Cost $107,000

By JLP | November 26, 2012

The items in the song “12 Days of Christmas” now cost over $107,000.

That’s a 6.1% increase over last year.

Good thing no one actually wants most of those items (except for maybe gold rings).

    “Good thing no one actually wants most of those items (except for maybe gold rings).”

    I think you hit the nail on the head. There isn’t much of a market for live geese, so expect to pay out the nose for those “rare” items listed in the song.

    6.1% ? That sounds like it is close to the ‘real’ inflation rate.

    We have flocks of Canada geese in this area, leaving their greenish droppings on the ground. Not sure why anyone would want geese around unless they are tasty.
