I’m a little bit richer today

100euror

The Spanish Christmas lottery, El Gordo, was drawn this morning. My number, 20889, won a pedrea, a “pebble,” a minor prize. It comes out to €100 for me, US$122. I spent €20 on the ticket, so I made €5 for each €1 invested.

I plan to splurge on groceries and books.

The lottery marks the beginning of Christmas celebrations in Spain. They go on until the Three Kings bring presents on January 6. It takes a lot of stamina to make it through the holidays here.

Best wishes to you and yours for the season!

Igualmente. As I watched the televised drawing, I annoyed the potted olive tree in my living room by hanging decorations on it so it could be our Christmas tree. It looks a little non-traditional, but there are presents under it.
