Cost of Christmas

As part of its annual tradition, PNC Wealth Management tabulates the “True Cost of Christmas,” which is the total cost of items gifted by a True Love who repeats all of the song’s verses.


This holiday season, very generous True Loves will pay more than ever before — $75,122 — for all 364 items, up from $72,608 in 2005. This 3.5% increase is substantially less than last year’s 9.5% increase.
