This year, if you bought all the items/people in the traditional 12 Days of Christmas song, it would cost you CDN$85,233.
Which is $75,227.70 in USD!
Holy Cow! That's a lot of money...I'm wondering if I should let my hubby in on that one. He kind of balked when I told him how many gifts I was going to be doing for this swap *chuckles*. (I had told him before I even joined, and he was ok with it. He'd just forgotten lol. Don't worry, sewpixie, I'm not getting in trouble
*chuckles* ya know... I wouldn't even know where to put
any of the stuff from the song, if it'd been litteral! There's barely enough room for 2 people and 2 cats in my appartment lol, let alone a partridge, a pear tree, 2 doves (oh how the cats would love these), 3 hens, 4 calling birds, 6 geese, 7 swans, 8 maids, 9 ladies, 10 lords, 11 pipers and 12 drummers! The rings, those I could find room for
And let's not forget the cows that accompany the maids...they are a-milking afterall...
