Group: Cost Of Presents In ‘Twelve Days Of Christmas’ Rises

Just over $34,000.

That's the total cost for buying all the items in the "Twelve Days of Christmas" song, according to PNC Financial Services Group Inc.

That's nearly $200 higher than last year.

“While the economy continues to chug along on a sustainable path, low commodity prices are keeping consumer costs down. With only a few items in our index increasing in cost this year, True Loves should be thrilled that they can have their goose and better afford the gas to roast it, too,” said Jim Dunigan, chief investment officer at PNC Asset Management Group. 

Among the prices: nearly $2,900 for 12 drummers drumming, just over $13,000 for the seven swans a swimming and $750 even for the five gold rings.

A partridge in a pear tree will cost you $215.
