Welcome to Day Four of our 12 Days of Celebrities Celebrating amicable holiday smackdown! Though there's still a few weeks before Hannukah, Christmas, and New Year's Eve are over, the celebrities — along with their pets, stalkers, and Instagram followers — want you to know that they're already making the most of the occasion.
But only one celebrity can be having the Most Fun Ever (today). So far, winners have included Everyone on Kelly Clarkson's Christmas card list and Cara Delevingne's hilariously expressive family, but here are your runners up and winner for Monday, December 14th:
Runner Up #2: Jesse Tyler Ferguson's Dinner Party
If you could guess who, out of every celebrity in the entire world, could host the most adorable holiday dinner party, Jesse Tyler Ferguson would probably be, like, right after Martha Stewart and Ina Garten. Instagram caption: "Sometimes friends come over to eat the food you make and in return they give you Kylie lip kits, copies of their new cookbooks, and write songs about you." Oh, and Chrissy Teigen and John Legend were there.

Runner Up #1: The Women of Chicago
Because local news stories are our nation's biggest treasure, last night the world was introduced to Ethan Renoe, a.k.a. Ethan the Shirtless Wonder. While a weather reporter was stationed outside in Chicago, Illinois, he stopped to interview a shirtless jogger. Why was this shirtless jogger shirtless? "It's too wet," Ethan the Shirtless Wonder replied, and then proceeded to throw up deuces and announce, "I'm also single." Beautiful.
Rare wintertime shirtlessness: 1,000
Singledom during the holidays: 1,000
Final score: 2,000
