A happy Ellen DeGeneres woke up on Christmas Day and shared this upbeat message with her 24.2 million followers on Twitter: ‘It’s Christmas! I love and appreciate life, and I love and appreciate each and every one of you.’

The popular talk show host was among the LGBTI celebrities who shared holiday greetings on social media.

Alan Cumming, one of the stars of TV’s The Good Wife, is suffering from a cold in style. He tweeted a photo of a gorgeous view with this message: ‘Happy everything to everyone! I’m in the bath with a cold and a glass of champagne.’

Another Tony winner, BD Wong of Law & Order Fame, shared a holiday prayer with his Twitter followers: ‘God grant me the sanity 2 reject the food I dont need, the salt thatll kill me, & the wisdom 2 know the difference.’

Talk show host Ross Mathews tweeted while he was impatiently waiting for his husband to wake up: ‘IT’S CHRISTMAS!!!!!! Salvador is still asleep & I’m trying not to jump on the bed while screaming, "PRESENTS! PRESENTS! PRESENTS.’

Actor Sean Maher of Firefly fame got his Christmas wish: ‘It’s snowing! Mother Nature must be on twitter and saw my request for a white Christmas :)’

The always glittery figure skater Johnny Weir had this wish for his followers: ‘Christmas tidings to you and yours. Bring on the wine and glitter.’

And finally, Olympic legend Greg Louganis tweeted a selfie of he and husband Johnny Chaillot: ‘On our way to a friends Christmas lunch Baklava on board! Love my man!’
