While most young people would be super excited to unwrap an Apple iPhone box on Christmas day, Grandma was not so pleased.

"I'm really not equipped to handle this," she said, noting that she uses a landline.

Fortunately for her, it wasn't exactly an iPhone, but it was still pretty sweet.

As part of an annual tradition, British photographer Peter Thorpe dresses his dog Raggle up in various costumes for his Christmas cards.

Each photo is created using elaborate props as opposed to Photoshop, and for 2014, they went with a mouse theme.

This year will be her last, however, as she will be retiring from modeling due to her old age, according to his blog.

Here are a few of the photos from previous years, and you can view more on his website.

A Pennsylvania man is terrorizing his neighbors with his unusual holiday decorations, which includes a beheaded choir, a hanging Mickey Mouse and a urinating Santa Claus.

"There was a Virgin Mary here, and he placed a knife through her head, right there on the edge of our driveway," said one woman "I thought it was a terroristic threat."

The owner of the home, Bill Ansell, leaves the decorations up all year. He once had one of the best decorated homes on the block, but a complaint from one of his neighbors about bright lights turned into an all out war that has gone on for the past 6 years, according to 20/20.

The neighbors say they feel trapped, and despite being fined numerous times, he has yet to clean up his yard.

Here's a report on Ansell from a few years ago via KDKA-TV:

Looking for some hate-filled paper to gift wrap that Hitler teapot you bought last year for your special neo-Nazi someone?

Look no further.

Hallmark has pulled one of its gift wrap designs from stores after complaints that the interlocking lines in the pattern resembled swastikas. A woman in California spotted the paper in the Hanukkah section of a Walgreen's.

"We apologize for the oversight and apologize to anyone who was offended. That obviously was not our intent," said Hallmark spokeswoman Julie Elliott. "It was an oversight on our part to not notice the intersecting lines that could be seen as a swastika pattern."

The design, she said, was originally based on the pattern from a Chinese vase.

You've seen him in "Lord of the Rings" and "Star Wars," but have you heard him sing praise to the demons of Hell?

Actor Sir Christopher Lee has released a new heavy metal single called "Darkest Carols, Faithful Sing," just in time for the birth of the anti-christ.

The 92-year-old's metal work is not new, however. He released the symphonic metal album "Charlemagne: By the Sword and the Cross" in 2010 and another, "Charlemagne: The Omens of Death" in 2013.

And he's been recording music alongside his acting career since the '80s.

Last year, he released a "naughty" Christmas song called "Jingle Hell."

"It's light-hearted, joyful and fun. It's a band singing on how metal should be played, the effect it has on the band and its listeners," he says of his latest release.

Note: "Spoiler Alert" should come BEFORE you actually spoil something.

Comedian Kitty Flanagan made that mistake by stating that Santa doesn't exist multiple times during a 6:30pm broadcast of Channel 10's "The Project" in Australia.

"Oh sorry — spoiler alert," she said. "If you have kids in the room, you should probably have covered their ears and gone 'la, la, la!' or something."

Sure, maybe not that many young kids who still believe in Santa are watching the evening news, but enough were to cause a whole slew of complaints online from angry parents.

The show then apologized on air and even had "Santa" on the show for an interview about gearing up for Christmas.

You can stop stringing up those lights and nailing that Santa to your roof, because this street officially wins Christmas.

A stretch of more than 16 homes in Yucaipa, Calif. coordinated their holiday displays, which light up to music, and the entire show is being captured via drone.

"The Manning Street Christmas Music Light Show", as it is called, runs daily, and people in the area can park their cars and tune into 92.5 FM to experience it.

Coordinator Jeff Maxey uploaded a few different demo videos to his page. In addition to Mariah Carey's "All I Want for Christmas is You" (above), watch the homes perform "Wizards in Winter" by the Trans-Siberian Orchestra.
