If one's true love bought everything mentioned in the song, "The 12 Days of Christmas," it would cost more than $34,000, according to PNC Wealth Management's annual Christmas Price Index.

LINDA WERTHEIMER, HOST:

According to PNC's wealth management's annual price index of the 12 days of Christmas, if one's true love bought everything mentioned in the carol - the turtle doves, the French hens - it would cost over $34,000. That's up six-tenths of a percent from last year. PNC mainly says that's due to the rising popularity of partridges. It's MORNING EDITION.
