Attention, holiday shoppers — here's your 12 Days of Christmas price index

DENVER BUSINESS JOURNAL - If you buy your true love the gifts included in the song “The 12 Days of Christmas” this holiday season, prepare to shell out $34,558.65, about $200 more than in 2016 or a hike of less than 1 percent, according to PNC Financial Services Group Inc. (NYSE: PNC), which has been tallying the cost since 1984.

PNC (NYSE:PNC) released the costs this week on its interactive website.

The price was unchanged for all but three items. Here’s why you’ll pay more for the following:

- A partridge in a pear tree’s price was up 4.7 percent but not because of the bird. The pear tree increased 5.2 percent, from $189.99 to $199.95 due to increased cost of living for workers and the limited supply of larger, more mature trees.
