The Cost of the Twelve Days of Christmas

By | source: Dec 9th, 2013

If you celebrate Christmas you likely know all of the traditional songs that go along with the holiday. Classics such as “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer,” “Jingle Bells,” and “Let it Snow,” among many more can be heard all over in the weeks leading up to Christmas, but perhaps none are quite so iconic as “The Twelve Days of Christmas,” where the singer buys their love an oddly large number of gifts for the holiday. Have you ever wondered how much all of those strange gifts cost?

Today’s fun infographic gives us a look at the “cost” of all of the presents given in “The Twelve Days of Christmas,” 30 years ago vs. today, and it ends up being higher than you may expect. The partridge in a pear tree alone costs close to $200, not to mention the $2,800 you’ll need for twelve drummers drumming. When all is said and done you could expect the grand total to be somewhere in the ballpark of $27,000 for all of those gifts, so something a little more traditional may be the better option.
