The winning number for Spain’s El Gordo Christmas Lottery this morning was 62246. My number was 75573.
In addition, of the more than 15,000 smaller prizes in the lottery, I won not a single euro.
Oh, well. At least I still have my health. That’s the traditional thing to say, and it’s true: health is priceless and cannot be won in a lottery. (But that might make in interesting premise for a science fiction story.)
Holiday celebrating is now underway. And here in Spain, we’ll keep celebrating until the Three Kings come on January 6. So if you’ll excuse me, I feel the need to go decorate something.
