Looks like some of Kelly Clarkson's fans will be unwrapping a special gift this holiday season.  Her new Christmas album, Wrapped in Red , has debuted on the album chart at #3, with first-week sales of 70,000 copies.  It's Kelly's sixth top-10 album, but her first-ever holiday disc.

Kelly tweeted, "Just found out my Christmas cd, Wrapped In Red , sold 70,000 records the first week and it's October!!! Thank you so much everybody!! #woohoo."  When she realized her error, she added, "Okay so I meant my album came out in October haha ....I realize it's November now :)," and added the hashtag, "# IWasHalfRight."

Moviegoers are also enjoying Kelly's holiday music: her song "Underneath the Tree" is being used in the trailer for the new movie About Time .  The movie was directed and written by Richard Curtis, the man who brought you Notting Hill , Love Actually and Four Weddings and a Funeral. In fact, Kelly's song "The Trouble with Love Is," was featured on the Love Actually soundtrack .

Joining Kelly in the top 10 this week is Duck the Halls: A Robertson Family Christmas, a holiday record by the cast of the reality show Duck Dynasty , whichdebuts at #4.  According to Billboard , this marks the first time two Christmas albums have ever simultaneously debuted in the top five.
