Forget The Hoes, Spain’s Christmas Lottery Makes It Rain On The Whole Damn Country…3 Billion Dollars Worth Of Rain!!
Maaaan listen, Spain got it RIGHT with their lottery system! Can you imagine how much money would be distributed if America used this same style? If they don’t re-elect Obama we might have to find some property in Madrid
Spain’s beloved Christmas lottery sprinkled 2.3 billion euros ($3 billion) in holiday cheer across the country Wednesday, handing out winnings eagerly welcomed by a nation facing 20 percent unemployment.
One of the most awaited days of the year in Spain served up merry moments for people struggling to make mortgage payments and pay bills, or those seeking jobs. One lottery vendor said he had hired a medium to lure good luck.
