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.
