I hope everyone is having a great weekend. Portia and I spent it getting extra Christmas decorations for our lawn to keep up with the Joneses. I’ll tell ya, if that James Earl Jones buys one more inflatable snowman, we’re moving.

Everyone in my audience has been in the holiday spirit since it’s my 12 Days of Giveaways! The first 5 days were so much fun, I can’t wait for the next 5!

The giveaways aren’t just for my audience, they’re also for you! This year, I have more ways than ever to win, like on Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, Pinterest and more! If anyone invents another social media website before the 12 Days are over, I’m sure it’ll be on there, too.

I also wanna wish all of you a Happy Hanukah! Chanukah. Hanukkah. Come on, spellcheck, they can’t all be right.

Here’s another reason to celebrate: Justin Bieber is on my show this week! Portia and I are so excited, we’re gonna wait up for the sound of his entourage landing on our rooftop.

And speaking of unbelievably talented performers, Usher is here! Last weekend, I saw one of his rehearsals, and it was one of the most incredible things I’ve ever seen. You won’t believe the performance he’s gonna give on my show.

Plus, two of the stars from the new movie “Les Miserables” are here -- Hugh Jackman and Amanda Seyfried! For all you homeschoolers, “Les Miserables” is French for “The Tiny Marbles.”

Fergie is dropping by, and we’re gonna talk about why her husband, Josh Duhamel, insists on ripping his clothes off every time he’s here.

I’m also talking to two very inspiring people, J.R. Martinez and Tom Shadyac. If you’re looking for something to fill you with hope and encouragement this holiday season, you don’t wanna miss them.

That’s not all that’s happening! We’ve got Naomi Watts, Nathan Lane, Idina Menzel, 2 turtle doves and a partridge in a pear tree. Sorry, I’ve had that song stuck in my head all week.

See you Monday!

Hi Ellen! I wrote to you about 2 years ago, asking for help from for me and my wife for a fertility treatment.we've been tryng for 16 y to have a family without luck.All the specialists we went to see over the years said the same thing ( we need Invitro) wich was out of our reach monetary talking...it was hard for me to be 40 and still no babies,it was hard for us as a married couple to be toguether for 16 years and no babies, but it was sooo much harder for my wife to be 35 and no babies (she told me lots of times she was mad at herself for being defective ) and that brakes my heart. Well, on feb.14.14 my wife found an old pregnancy test in the bathroom (the ones that cost a dollar lol)..and she used it...A BIG POSITIVE!!!! but it was 6 am she tought she was just dreaming or her eyes was betraying her on seeing what she was waiting for so many years. i tried to get to the farmacy to get better test but that day Charlotte have the snow of the time!!! unabling me to go any further in my '97 van that even old is loyal to us ( on october it was stolen from our parking lot but the police found it and bring it to us,after that she turn off anywere, but she still drive us to most places we need to go, like the babies appoitments and for me to go to work. LIFE IS GOOD!! We were never this happy, my wife Norma never felt so prettier even with all the pounds she is getting! this is why my wife is my #1 Favorite MOM,she is carrying OUR SON :)

This time of year is supposed to be a happy time, but for many it is so hard. You hear about giveaways helping people but you know the chances of it actually helping you are so slim. Then you buy into it and have hope that it may reach you. Only, to not find your name on the list. It seems almost like you ruined it yourself by putting too much faith in. You are so happy for the ones who do win but then you feel so depressed because you actually thought it would happen for you and your family. If at all possible I would love to give my family a wonderful Christmas. I am not in the best of health and live on SS disability and suffer from much including MS. If you could find a Wonderful Day of Christmas in your bag for me and my family, I would be overjoyed. You hold so much power over Americans feelings and hopes and you are so benevolent and caring. May God Bless you and your family for all you do. Sincerely, Barbara Mozley

I am currently babysitting my 6 month grandson. Yesterday he pooped green? I know from my own kids it's dye from something purple. My son said it was tylenol or triaminic. Why do companies put so much dye in products? My mom was on her way to the hospital when her tongue turned black, and I said did you take Pepto Bismal because it turns your tongue black and your stool black. She did and didn't go to the hospital. I love your show and sometimes you ask for info from real people like me. I am blessed because I want for nothing but to come see your show and ask if we can stop putting dye in so many products, why can't they be clear? What is up with the dyes and colors? Love you and your generosity.

I watch your show every day or at least I try to. When I've had a bad day, which happens more than not, I can always count on you to cheer me up. I don't win and prize either, but someday I will. I consider myself a winner every time I watch you! HAPPY HOLIDAYS to you and your Wonderful Family!

Hi Ellen,

Many blessings to you and your family. Sorry to say my heart was not in the christmas spirit this year. So much happening with my daughter and her two daughters, my grandchildren, ages 3 and 4. The four year old was just in a car accident with her grandfather on Friday, January 4, she is fine, thank god. Accident happened just two days before my daughter Sherri's 25 Birthday. DCYF became involved, it's just been a horrible, horrible start of the new year. If there is any chance of entering for a giveaway I would love to enter. Anything to help brighten the spirits of this family would be greatly appreciated, even just a little something.

Thank you from the bottom of my heart
