New Style, cost of 10 squirrels leaping: $0.00

Old (Classic) Style, cost of 10 Lords a-leaping: $98.00

.Squirrels.  We have lots of them.  They are leaping all over the yard.  Off the fences.  Through the trees.  On the roof.

Squirrels are abundant.  No cost there. 

However, the ten lords a-leaping is another matter.  Where would you see lords a-leaping…. I thought about it a while.  Where to see lords a-leaping??
Aha!  Riverdance!
Tickets to see a performance of Riverdance in Mobile, Alabama, were $98.  And if they do this one:
Well, there are TEN lords a-leaping. (Hey, besides a lot of tapping, they did some leaping there at the end!)
So that takes care of the 10 Lords a-leaping!

Total to date:
New Style – $6,645.89
Classic Style – $12,723.74

Classic Style is still almost twice what it is for the Country Style, or new way of doing “The Twelve Days of Christmas”.
