Just how much does a partridge in a pear tree cost these days?

Ever think about giving someone the "Twelve Days of Christmas" for Christmas. You better start saving. It will cost $18,920.59 this year. The most expensive items you ask... 9 Ladies Dancing, 10 Lords-a-Leaping, and 7 Swans-a-Swimming, each costing over $4,000. The least expensive... 2 Turtle Doves, costing only $40.00. By the way, the partridge and the pear tree will set you back $144.99.

Thanks to PNC for sharing this fun and informative study every Christmas!
