Spanish Christmas Lottery 22nd December

An El Gordo Spanish Christmas Lottery ticket from 2009

Drawn on 22nd December each year, the Spanish Christmas Lottery is the biggest lottery in the world and an exciting and eagerly-awaited kick-start to Christmas - especially for those who become millionaires! This year, there are 2,380 million euros in the El Gordo (The Fat One) prize pot. In this video, Tom Bacon explains how the whole El Gordo lottery works.




Unlike so many journalists writing about the resorts, Pamela has not only actually been to Tenerife, she lived on the island for 16 years, for the majority of that time in a rural valley immersed in the local culture in a way that few outsiders have been privileged to do and gaining a wealth of knowledge about the island, its people, their customs, fiestas and celebrations that she is now able to share via this site. Fluent in Spanish, she also translated and reported for the various English-language newspapers.
