Nada de nada

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.

¡Felices fiestas!
