or colly birds
What is a colly bird?
In England a coal mine is called a colliery, and colly means black as coal.
This year the price of four calling, or colly birds, has remained steady
at $599.96 per the PNC Financial Services Group here in Pittsburgh.
Since 1984 they have calculated the costs of the cumulative
gifts in the song The Twelve Days of Christmas in the Christmas Price Index.
The Twelve Days of Christmas has been recorded by countless performers.
The Muppets and John Denver rendition from 1979 is my favorite version. The song lyrics remain the same as the classic version, with Miss Piggy adding in her long drawn out "Five gold rings" and classic "ba-dum-bum-bum."
