Ellen DeGeneres spreads more cheer on day 8 of '12 Days of Giveaways'

See also

Every year, Ellen DeGeneres dons her Santa hat and celebrates the season of giving with “12 Days of Giveaways,” which is very similar to Oprah’s “Favorite Things.” However, Ellen’s version stretches out for twelve whole days. On Dec. 16, DeGeneres started the new week off in a big way by giving away $2,700 of Christmas cheer. Concerning her desire to make others happy during the holiday season, Ellen told the “LA Times":

With Christmas, as you get older, it’s about the joy you get from giving and seeing the reaction of the other person.

At the beginning of the episode, Ellen said that she wanted to do her own Kiss Cam to celebrate the holiday season. When the camera stopped on a couple, they had to immediately pucker up and kiss each other. Several did just that, but when Ellen asked one couple how long they knew each other, a third person popped into the picture, claiming to be the woman’s husband. This was immediately followed by “The Most Wonderful Time of the Year” music and an appearance by Slothy the Snowman, Ellen’s “12 Days of Giveaways” mascot for 2013.
