12 Days of Christmas- revised!


Guy Kawasaki recently tweeted about the following: PNC Wealth Management has released its annual price tag for the 364 items mentioned in the “12 Days of Christmas” and this year’s bill adds up to wallet-busting $96,824. The nearly $100,000 tab marks a 10.8 percent jump from last year.

100K!  That’s ridiculous!!!  So, Santa- here is my new version—

On the first day of Christmas, my true love gave to me, a strand of new L E Ds for the Christmas tree.

On the second day of Christmas, my true love gave to me, one box of French Chocolate Truffles from Costco, and a strand of new L E Ds.

On the third day of Christmas, my true love gave to me, one i-Tunes gift card, one box of French Chocolate Truffles from Costco, and a strand of new L E Ds.

On the fourth day of Christmas, my true love gave to me, two pairs of ski socks, one i-Tunes gift card, one box of French Chocolate Truffles from Costco, and a strand of new L E Ds.

On the fifth day of Christmas, my true love gave to me, one set of martini glasses, two pairs of ski socks, one i-Tunes gift card, one box of French Chocolate Truffles from Costco, and a strand of new L E Ds.

On the twelfth day of Christmas, my true love gave to me, a day off so that I could return some of the other stuff.  Who needs 3 sets of snow tires!!  And, then consider the opportunities for re-gifting, especially the Truffles.  I simply can’t eat that much chocolate…                     Estimated Total $3,640.00!
