"At least I have my health" 
22nd-Dec-2009 03:16 pm

That's what the losers in El Gordo lottery in Spain are supposed to say to console themselves: "At least I have my health." That's why in Spain, December 22 is known as "el Día de la Salud," Health Day.

Number 78,294 won El Gordo. That wasn't my number.

In any case, with the drawing of El Gordo lottery, holiday celebrations have officially begun, and as little work as possible will be done in Spain until after the Three Kings bring gifts for everyone on January 6.

And I do have my health, which is prize enough. May that be true for you, too, during these holidays and for the coming year.

National Public Radio did a piece on El Gordo this morning, complete with singing school children, and I thought of you. Sorry for your loss. ;-)

Well, El Gordo "landed" in a poor suburb of Madrid that needed the money, so I'm happy for them. And I'm on vacation now until January 11!

Oh. Well, at least you have your health. Next year will be your year. Happy 2010.
