Christmas Price Index

9 Dancing Ladies Cost More Than 7 Swans A Swimming This Year

For 26 years, PNC Wealth Management has calculated the cost of the items in the song “The Twelve Days of Christmas” if purchased at current prices. Over the years, trends have emerged and the Christmas Price Index has often increased or decreased at a rate consistent with the other CPI, the Consumer Price Index, a measure of inflation produced by the U.S. Department of Labor. Showcasing the cost of items from a partridge to drummers, the Christmas Price Index is a fun way for students, children and adults to measure consumer spending and trends in the economy.
