Every year, someone takes the time to figure out the market price for all of the different gifts listed in the "12 Days of Christmas" and compares it to years past. This year, the total figure for the 12 days is up seven percent, to over $114,000. Apparently the biggest jump, according to PNC Wealth Management, was for the "Nine Ladies Dancing" who got a well-deserved 20 percent raise.
And let me tell you, they earned each and every dollar of that raise. One dollar at a time.
