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.

If you're looking for a cute, cuddly (posessed) stuffed animal to go with that "Evil Stick" you bought for your kids - you're in luck.

Just in time for Christmas, Satan has unleashed his latest minion disguised as a tiny giraffe.

Watch it walk across a table emitting a high-pitched scream to conjure all the demons from hell to your house for the holidays.

Come for the mozzarella sticks, go home with a bloody nose.

TGI Friday's "Mobile Misteltoe" has had its first casualty, crashing into a woman's face a chipping off a piece of her nose, according to Brooklyn Daily.

The two remote-controlled helicopters dangling sprigs of mistletoe were intended to spread holiday romance, but one of them flew out of control and clipped Courier photographer Georgine Benvenuto in the nose with one of its spinning, uncovered blades.

The drone operator was attempting to land the device on the reporter's hand, when it veered off and hit Benvenuto.


TGI Friday's says it hasn't had any other accidents in its test flights, and that it's safe because ""we do not let consumers touch it."

The drones are part of a marketing campaign by the restaurant chain in which the devices fly above customers heads while they eat, forcing them to kiss.

The bloodshed is just an added bonus… because drones will be drones!
