Partridges, Geese, and Swans Cost How Much?

For the last 30 years PNC has tallied how much all of the items in the song The Twelve Days of Christmas cost, and the results for this year have been tabulated.

To take away some of the sticker shock of purchasing all of the swimming swans, golden rings, and drummers drumming, prepare some hot chocolate and read one of these illustrated versions of the song with your family. Both of these titles are available in the Sullivan University Library, and one of the librarians will be glad to help you find them.
