I thought this was funny!

The complete catalog of gifts in the old Christmas carol “The Twelve Days of Christmas” today would cost you a total of $15,231.72.

J. Patrick Bradle, chief economist at Provident National Bank in Philidelphia, figures the breakdown of prices for the 12 days as follows:

*One partridge in a pear tree – $27.48 (partridge, $15; pear tree, $12.48)

         * Two turtle doves – $50

* Three French hens – $15

* Four calling birds – $280

* Five golden rings – $600

* Six geese-a-laying – $150

* Seven swans-a-swimming – $7,000

* Eight maids-a-milking – $30.40

* Nine ladies dancing – $2,417.90

* Ten lords-a-leaping – $2,686.56

* Eleven pipers piping – $947.70

* Twelve drummers drumming – $1,026.68

Whoa!
