The holidays are extremely bright for one Hixson electrician.

Seth Cordell won $1 million playing the Tennessee Lottery game 'Ultimate Millions.'

Cordell purchased his ticket at the Circle K in the 8500 block of Hixson Pike.

“I got back to the office and showed my secretary,” Seth Cordell said. “I asked her if she was seeing what I thought I was seeing … and she shouted: ‘You’ve won the lottery!’”

Cordell said the $1 million prize will be a "nice cushion" for his family.
