12days partridge 150x150 Cost of 12 Days of Christmas Rises 7.7% This YearFor 30 years, PNC Wealth Management has measured the cost of fulfilling the gifts promised in the song, “12 Days of Christmas” and reports that in 2013, giving those gifts to your true love will cost you $27,393.17, up 7.7% from last year.

In case you need reminding, that $27K+ will buy you:

  • 12 Drummers Drumming
  • 11 Pipers Piping
  • 10 Lords-a-Leaping
  • 9 Ladies Dancing
  • 8 Maids-a-Milking
  • 7 Swans-a-Swimming
  • 6 Geese-a-Laying
  • 5 Gold Rings
  • 4 Calling Birds
  • 3 French Hens
  • 2 Turtle Doves
  • A Partridge in a Pear Tree

According to PNC, the largest contributing factor to the price increase is labor.  The price for 9 Ladies Dancing rose 20%, 10 Lords Leaping is up 10% and the pipers and drummers are up almost 3% from 2012.

We suggest you forego the items above and instead give yourself and your loved ones the gift of an estate plan this year.  It will protect your assets long after the maids have stopped milking.  Contact our Newport Beach law firm to get started.
