One Mandeville, LA, couple now has 1.8 million reasons to be thankful during this holiday season. For Tina and Harold Ehrenberg, Thanksgiving and Christmas just got a little better and they have quite a bit to look forward to for the new year. According to ABC News, the couple had only planned to clean the home for the holidays, but their plans took an interesting, positive turn when they came across Louisiana Lotto lottery ticket they’d purchased months prior.
Apparently, the ticket had been sitting on their nightstand for quite some time, but they hadn’t checked the numbers. Instead of tossing the old lottery ticket in a trash can, they decided to take a look at the winning numbers for the date on the ticket.
