The winners of the 2012 New Year Postcard lottery for the Year of the Dragon (my year!) have been announced, and the winning numbers and prizes are as follows. The number to check is the six digit number at the bottom right of the card. Note that some cards do not actually have numbers, which means they are not eligible.
