So, I found some turtle doves, at $20.00 apiece.
Total for the day — $40.00
Now, here’s where folks start disagreeing. My husband says that once you’ve bought the darn pear tree, you shouldn’t have to buy it again. My sister, however, maintains that as each previous present is re-listed in the every verse, every previous gift must be repeated on each successive day.
So, the grand total — today’s $40.00 doves, plus another pear tree and partridge for $43.00 — comes to:
Grand total: $83.00.
