How much would it cost to buy the items in the song "The Twelve Days of Christmas"? See them here and how they have changed over time...
Every year for the past 30 years the bank PNC has compiled the prices of the items contained in the traditional Christmas song "The Twelve Days of Christmas". If you were REALLY going to give these as gifts what would the prices be and how have those prices changed over time. It is a fun way to learn about the Consumer Price Index (CPI).
