CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Hope you're ready this year---the cost of Turtle Doves is going up this year as well as Golden Rings.
In fact every item in the 12 Days of Christmas will be very expensive again this year.
PNC’s popular Christmas Price Index (CPI), now in its 29th year reports an improving economy — along with a severe drought that caused increased feed costs for large birds.
This generated a 4.8 percent surge in the 2012 PNC Christmas Price Index.
Weston Andress is the regional president in Charlotte for PNC Bank. He was our guest on Larry's Look this morning to explain how the Index works plus he had the new prices for each of the 12 Days of Christmas.
To provide the “musical support”, members of the Carolina Voices were in our studios to sing the 12 Days of Christmas. They will be joined by a larger chorus for “The Singing Christmas Tree” at Ovens Auditorium, an annual tradition in Charlotte.
