NATIONAL BRIEFING / AND FINALLY...

Could your true love afford this?

December 01, 2008|TIMES WIRE REPORTS

Given the economic crisis, even the most romantic person might balk at the $86,609 price tag for items in the carol "The Twelve Days of Christmas."

That's this year's cost, according to the Christmas Price Index compiled by PNC Wealth Management, which since 1984 has tallied the single partridge in a pear tree all the way up to the 12 drummers drumming, purchased repeatedly as the song suggests.

The price rose $8,509 from $78,100 last year.
