    Re: The Twelve Days of Christmas Costs

    The Christmas Index has sure opened my eyes. I just realized that I can no longer "afford" to sing The twelve Days of Christmas. The partridge minus the pear tree is about as far as my budget will stretch. The 10 Lords-a-Leaping (priced at $4,039.08) can just go ahead and leap off of a cliff as far as I'm concerned.
