PNC Wealth Management took a look at how the prices behind the carol "Twelve Days a Christmas" has changed over the years, and this year was one of the larger jumps on record: Almost 8 percent.
Since PNC launched their index in 1984, increases in the so-called 'Christmas index' have matched inflation in the U.S. at about 2.9 percent.
According to PNC, if you wanted to buy all the goods, services, animals, etc., listed in the "Twelve Days of Christmas” box-set it would have cost you "$27,393.17 in 2013, $1,192 more than last year and the largest increase since 2010 when the index jumped 9.2 percent."
