MARCOPIA, Ariz., (UPI) — An Arizona woman who decided not to compete with her neighbor’s holiday lights display is gaining attention for her own lights arranged to read “Ditto.”
Kristina Green of Marcopia, who is spending her first holiday season in the area, said she knew she could not compete with the 20,000-light display her neighbor created for the Christmas season so the lights decorating her house merely spell out “Ditto” with an arrow pointing toward the elaborate display, KTVK-TV, Phoenix, reported Wednesday.
The “Ditto” sign was actually created by Eric Cyr, the same neighbor whose house is indicated by the arrow, KNXV-TV, Phoenix, reported. He said he only had a few lights on his house in 2010, but the display has grown by several thousand lights during the past two years.
“As a kid I loved watching Christmas lights and going to see them and that’s just inspired me,” Cyr said.
