Every year, Ellen DeGeneres dons her Santa hat and hosts “12 Days of Giveaways,” which is very similar to Oprah’s “Favorite Things.” However, Ellen’s version lasts for twelve days. In an email to fans sent on Dec. 2, DeGeneres announced that the highly anticipated TV event begins on Dec. 3 and viewers can register to win many of the prizes at home.
On Sunday night, Ellen DeGeneres said…
My 12 Days of Giveaways begin on Monday! I couldn’t be more excited. Mama always said it’s better to give than to receive, which is probably why she always made me give my presents to my brother.
The 12 Days of Giveaways is my favorite time of year. Every season, I give away bigger and better prizes, and Season 10 is gonna be biggerer and betterer. But why should my audience have all the fun? I always make sure y’all at home can get in on all of the giveaways too, and this year we’ve got lots of fun ways to do it.
In 2012, Ellen is giving TV viewers at home a chance to win the prizes from her “12 Days of Giveaways.” Below is how you can participate.
