Stratford man keeps lotto win a secret until Christmas Day
A Stratford man had an unusual surprise for his family on Christmas Day: a winning lotto ticket.
The Stratford Patch reports that Richard Brown was out for ice cream with his family when he bought the ticket on a whim.
He says his kids were on the other side of the store when he scanned the ticket, and found he had just won $10,000.
Brown says he managed to keep his winning secret until Christmas morning.
The Browns will put the $10,000 toward an upcoming family vacation.
