KANSAS CITY, Mo., Dec. 23, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- In giving her Christmas gifts for 12 straight days, a true love inspires his girlfriend to build a whole new life.


It's a joyful story for the holidays but one that comes with risks.

Insurance Journal magazine and Lockton teamed up to provide risk management insight to the recipient of the lavish gifts in the popular Christmas carol, The Twelve Days of Christmas.

In the song, a true love gives his significant other a total of 364 gifts over the almost two-week period beginning on Christmas Day. These gifts include 12 partridges, 40 golden rings, 30 lords a leaping, 40 cows with maids-a-milking, and, of course, 12 drummers drumming.

They are marvelous gifts, but come with risks, as Insurance Journal and Lockton show in this report.  To download the full report, go here.
