Mega Millions and the Christmas Glitz

The Christmas season is the glitziest time of year. Whether it’s the extravagant lights or the decadent desserts, the office Christmas parties or the winter fashion, few can resist. On December 4th, Mega Millions couldn’t resist, either. In fact, it contributed to the glitz.

With no grand prize winner, the jackpot rose to $226 million. Becoming that wealthy (almost) overnight would be the ultimate Christmas gift, or at least hard to top!

Now, this may be jumping the gun, but there was a “crazy-large jackpot” around the time of another holiday earlier this year. Whether it grows to that size, or larger, remains to be seen. For now, we should concern ourselves with Friday night, and whether or not the {3-1-1-1} Pattern will make an encore.
