Britney Spears Gets in the Christmas Spirit

Britney Spears and Ellen DeGeneres surprised several Los Angeles residents by showing up at their homes and singing Christmas carols this past week.

The duo, dressed in old-timey dresses, taped the segment for the Ellen show, and hilarity definitely ensued (see the clip below.)

Britney, whose new album, Circus, just went #1, taped a more traditional holiday greeting on her website. Standing in front of her Christmas tree with son Sean Preston, 3, by her side, and a burping Jayden James, 2, in her arms, Britney said:

“I want to wish everybody out there a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year, and I want to thank all of my fans for making my album Circus # 1.” (video below)
