Cost of 12 days of christmas

As I child I loved the song "12 Days of Christmas" and wanted everything on the list, even though I had no idea what half of it meant, or how much it would cost. Yahoo had a special story today of how much it would cost to give the 12 Days of Christmas. The story doesn't include the whole break down of each day, but my local newspaper- The Morning Journal, gave me all the details. Here is the breakdown:

To buy each item once the cost would be $21.446. Now if you bought the items for each time they are sung in the song would be $87.403.

1 Partridge in a Pear Tree- $170
2 Tutle Doves- $56
3 French Hens- $45
4 Calling Birds- $600
5 Golden Rings- $500
6 Geese A Laying- $150
7 Swans A Swimming- $5,250
8 Maids  Milking- $58
9 Ladies Dancing- $5,473
10 Lords a Leapin- $4,414
11 Pipers Piping- $2,285
12 Drummers Drumming- $2,475
