On the first show of 2015, Ellen started with her rumour where she asked about how the new year resolutions are going. Then host Ellen decided to share on what she did during the holidays.
Ellen starts by saying that she did not 'had a great Christmas and a peaceful, restful holiday.' Ellen DeGeneres and wife Portia de Rossi's holidays involved "high winds, high fevers and packing peanuts," said Ellen.
Giving further details on their holidays, Ellen said on The Ellen Show's first episode of 2015. Ellen said, "Portia and I decided we would spend holidays at home coz we didn't wanted to get on airplanes. We stayed home and of course I got sick."
"We drove up to our house up in North... Christmas eve started to get windy, with trees blowing so, it was nice. But then the winds kicked up to 70 mile an hour. It sounded like a tornado," Ellen added.
Sadly, there was not electricity as a big branch fell down on Christmas day. The tree which was on her property spoiled her eve as the couple had problems making coffee as the coffee maker could not work without electricity. Sick Ellen could not even use a heater in the freezing house. This all happened on Christmas day!
With no TV and Internet, Ellen and Portia decided to open their Christmas gifts. Ellen revealed that wife, Portia gifted her a beautiful pottery on Christmas. Ellen explained that while opening the gift from the box, styrofoam packing peanuts (which is difficult for her to pronounce) was all over her body. Although the light came at 4:30 pm, sick Ellen could not take a hot shower.
Giving a recap, Ellen briefed it saying, "It's Christmas, I'm dressed like Gorton's fisherman [due to cold], covered in packing peanuts, tears frozen in my eyes, I'm sick, I'm dirty and I'm undercaffeinated. The only good news is, Portia was not sick. She got sick on New Year's Eve."
