If you can't compete with your neighbors, you might as well be witty about it. A Tarzana homeowner strung up holiday lights that spelled out, "DITTO," with an arrow pointing towards the next-door neighbor's ornate Christmas decorations.

This isn't the first time someone has used "DITTO" for decorations. Last December, a Maricopa, Ariz. resident did the same thing in response to her neighbor's 20,000-lights. Hey, maybe this might become a trend soon enough!
