Can You Afford The 12 Days of Christmas?
If you’re a thrifty shopper, you’ll be happy to know that you can get part of the 12 Days of Christmas at a bargain price. For instance, 8 Maids a Milking still cost well under $100 because of minimum wage. Three French Hens are just $165 and only $15 more than last year. And the Partridge is still $15, same as last year.
However, when you add them all up, to purchase the entire 12 Days of Christmas, it will set you back $107,300.
Even if I had that kind of money, I would have no use for all 12 days. The pear tree might be nice, but seriously, the drummers would drive me nuts after just a few minutes. And the Leaping Lords have attitude written all over them.
