There's an article that goes around every Christmas. It details how much you'd have to shell out if you sprang for all the items detailed in that carol "The 12 Days of Christmas." According to the so-called Christmas Price Index that PNC Wealth Management updates annually, the cost of being that generous in 2013 has gone up 7.7% from last year.
As I write this, there are just eight shopping days left until the first day of Christmas. Anyone know a local source for partridges and pear trees?
