12 Days of Christmas' Gifts Would Cost $87,403

I was in a meeting today and a fellow CPA shared with me the cost of 12 days of Christmas totaling $87,403.  The cost was compiled by PNC Wealth Management.

 Wow, can you believe the costs associated with a song so widely known carries a tab so large.

I suppose it makes your holiday budgeting slightly more palatable when you consider the sticker shock you could receive.

 Please consider your personal budgets as you are spending this month for loved ones.  I don't believe costs necessarily equate with affection felt for someone.  Approach your spending by setting aside what you are able to afford.  What you put on credit may over time take much longer than the life expectancy of what you gifted.
