I won the lottery!!!

Unbelievable! For once in my life I got really, really, really lucky.

I got four tickets to the Mo Tab Christmas Concert here in Salt Lake City.

The tickets are free but so very hard to get because there are over a million requests from around the world each year. There are less than 80,000 seats over four performances for each concert. The first few years they did this I was able to score tickets fine -- but since about 2002 or so it has been nigh on impossible to get in.

I can't tell you what a tradition this event has become to our family because we make a night of it every time we get to go. We dress up, travel downtown, take in the lights and eat at The Roof overlooking Temple Square (with the lights the the Nativity) and then take in the concert and try to meet the artists afterwards. It's an awesome night of Christmas.

And I got tickets!!!

(Mo, if you book a flight to SLC I'll save a seat for ya...)

Congratulations! Sounds like an awesome experience! I envy you your tickets!

Each year I think maybe we'll go into Boston and see one of the Boston Pops Christmas concerts---until I see the prices. Then I'm content to pull out a CD and just listen to the music.
