My lucky number: 75573

Carmencita



Tomorrow morning, the Christmas season in Spain begins in earnest with the drawing for El Gordo, the Christmas lottery.

It will take about three hours to award the jackpot of €2.5, or US$3 billion, which is split into more than 15,000 prizes.

I bought my ticket at my newspaper kiosk. This year, numbers that end in 13 are considered lucky since the year is 2013. However, I graduated from high school in 1973, so that might be lucky, too.

Last year, I won €20, which is what the ticket cost. This year, maybe I’ll break even again. Or maybe I’ll win €400,000. I’ll let you know.
