PNC Christmas Price Index® shows the true cost of The Twelve Days of Christmas!

My husband does his business banking through PNC Bank so I thought I would share this fun video they made to show the current cost of Christmas. PNC recently released it’s 28th annual Christmas Price Index®. Have you ever thought about how much it would cost you to buy each of the gifts in the “The Twelve Days of Christmas” song? Well 28 years ago, the chief economist at PNC did! 

Similar to the way that the Consumer Index measures the changes in the cost of consumer goods such as food, clothing, housing and utilities and related spending, The PNC Christmas Price Index® creatively shows this year’s cost for each of the gifts from “The Twelve Days of Christmas.” I thought the video was charming, we loved the train and scenery! And the website is quite informative!

Take a peek at the teaser before heading over for the full video!

Take a ride on the Index Express to find out just how much those 5 Golden Rings and 10 Lords-a-leaping really cost! Then check out the Making of the PNC Christmas Price Index Express video to see all the behind the scenes info.
