2. Every year, PNC Financial Services calculates the current cost/value of each of the 12 gifts. The 2016 cost would be a whole whoppin' $34,363.49 USD (https://www.pnc.com/en/about-pnc/topics/pnc-christmas-price-index.html). Does this fit your Christmas budget?

4. Obviously, the prices have changed drastically from when the song was published in 1780. However, considering the standard of living back then, do you think that the average person would have been able to afford all the gifts from every day?

5. What I often forget is that each day, the person's "true love" gave them each day's previous gift. So, PNC's Christmas price index is technically not completely accurate. You'd end up with... 12 partridges in 12 pear trees, 22 turtle doves, 30 french hens, 36 calling birds, 40 gold rings, 42 laying geese, 42 swimming swans, 40 milk maids, 36 dancing ladies, 30 leaping lords, 22 piping pipers, & 12 drummers. Does this seem rather excessive to you?
