The Twelve Days of Christmas

Ever wonder how much it would cost to purchase all the gifts in the classic Holiday song The Twelve Days of Christmas? Well the folks over at PNC Wealth Management just released their 27th annual PNC Christmas Price Index, which calculates the total cost of items gifted by a True Love who repeats all of the song's verses. This 2010 holiday season, very generous True Loves have to fork over $96,824 for all 364 gifts, an even more eye-popping 10.8 percent increase compared to last year. WOW! I did not realize that a partridge in a pear tree or seven swans a-swimming could cost so much! Check out the the PNC website for the details.
But in reality, the twelve days of Christmas are now upon us. Vintages can assure you that a True Love can get by on much less in our shop ... and get much more relevant and wonderful gifts as well.

On the twelfth day of Christmas,
My true love sent to me ...
Twelve drummers drumming,
Eleven pipers piping,
Ten lords a-leaping,
Nine ladies dancing,
Eight maids a-milking,
Seven swans a-swimming,
Six geese a-laying,
Five golden rings,
Four calling birds,
Three French hens,
Two turtledoves,
And a partridge in a pear tree!
