The True Cost of the 12 Days of Christmas…
I stumbled across a CPI index I was not familiar with created by PNC, The PNC Christmas Price Index [PNC]
It all started 21 years ago as a way to engage clients and has since grown into one of PNC’s most popular and anticipated economic reports: The Annual PNC Christmas Price Index.
There is an index for each of the twelve days of Christmas and they are matched against the decidedly boring government version of CPI.
Check each index out, although other than Turtle Doves, Gold Rings and Swans-a-Swimming, we are looking at some decidely intense holiday inflationary pressures. 😉
Warning: The site plays holiday music so be careful or you might get in the spirit of the holidays.
