Trends consistently show lottery ticket sales spikes during the holiday season. Are you buying any this year to serve as stocking stuffers?

        I normally buy scratch tickets for my family so they get a little bit of joy scratching it and seeing if they won. I think a little bit of the surprise goes away if you get a ticket with the numbers display and you look to see if you won or not via online or newspaper.

          Putting them in your soc drawer does not qualify as a stocking stuffer..........Thumbs Down
