One particularly generous and creative true love was made famous in the classic English carol The 12 Days of Christmas for lavishing his sweetheart with a lengthy list of gifts. According to the PNC Christmas Price Index, the real cost of the presents is up 7.7% this year to a whopping $27,393.13. But that’s if you can even find these obscure goodies. While debate over the song’s true meaning lingers, we thought it would be fun to explore a modern look at the carol’s lyrics. We hope you enjoy the visualization below, and from all of us here at GoodData, have a wonderful holiday season and New Year.
