The Lottery

The Lottery is a very old tradition that this town does. It seems very pointless but this town still likes to do it. When drawing from the tickets whoever gets the ticket with the black dot on it "wins". i would call it much of a win. Everybody participates in the lottery, even children.

How often?

The Lottery occurs every year in the summer but in this story it started June 2nd.

SOME of the participants in the lottery

A winner every year!!
