Saintly Mega Millions

November 1st is All Saints’ Day. Primarily celebrated by Catholics, it commemorates all the saints of the church, both known and unknown. “Saintly” isn’t the first thing that comes to mind when one sees or hears “Mega Millions”. This lottery is notorious for all kinds of chicanery, not to mention the controversial nature of lotteries themselves. After all the excitement and fun of scary movies, haunted hayrides and candy binges, many people want to take it easy. So do lotteries.

Mega Millions didn’t start November with a bang, opting to go for a more dignified approach. This paid off, for the jackpot grew to $110 million.
