Partridge, pear tree prices decline, but gold surge pushes up index

Making one's true love happy will cost a whopping $87,403 this year, a small increase from last year, according to the latest cost analysis of the items in the carol "The Twelve Days of Christmas."

That's the grand total for the single partridge in a pear tree to the 12 drummers drumming, purchased repeatedly as the song suggests, according to the annual "Christmas Price Index" compiled by PNC Wealth Management.

The price is up a mere $794, or less than 1 percent, from $86,609 last year.
