Weird BUT true

- Natalie Musumeci,Wires

Two men in Hawaii who have been friends for 60 years just discovered that they’re actually brothers.

Alan Robinson and Walter Macfarlane first met when they were in sixth grade in Oahu. But they only found out they were siblings after Macfarlane turned to a family DNA-matching site in search of his biological father.

“It really is a Christmas miracle,” Macfarlane said.

It’s the gift that keeps on giving.

A Canadian man dumped by his high-school girlfriend in 1970 still has a wrapped Christmas gift she gave him the day she said goodbye.

Even after Adrian Pearce, now 60, was married with kids, he placed the present under his family’s Christmas tree in Edmonton each year.

“I kept it initially because I guess I had hopes that we would get back together and open it together. Now it’s just become a habit after 47 years of . . . having the pleasure of not opening it,” Pearce said.

It’s the season of giving — and taking.

A 39-year-old woman was arrested for allegedly pulling a knife on another woman when a massive brawl broke out during a Christmas toy giveaway in Detroit.

The fight erupted on Saturday night at the Tower Center Mall.

This real-life Grinch has been put on blast.

A Texas homeowner is shaming a thief who swiped Christmas reindeer decoration­s from his lawn by blowing up surveillan­ce images of the crook and displaying them outside his home.

“He was so slow and methodical, that’s what reminded us of the story of the Grinch,” said San Antonio homeowner Ken Lamkin.

Your Christmas tree may be bugging out.

Philadelph­ia resident Daniel Reed posted a photo warning of “100-200 preying mantis eggs” on his tree.

“We had two egg masses on our tree this year. Don’t bring them inside, they will hatch and starve!” Reed warned.
