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!

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.
