DARTMOUTH, Nova Scotia, March 31 (UPI) -- A Canadian woman who got a note from a neighbor calling her seasonal decorations "tacky" said she will "go worse" with her Easter decorations.

Lori Perron of Dartmouth, Nova Scotia, said she got an anonymous note from a neighbor that said "do not demoralize our subdivision and street with yet again, your very tacky decorations. Halloween and Christmas was enough. Perhaps you should consider that this area is a step above you."

At first, Perron said she was hurt by the note. Then, the more she thought about it, she decided to go even bigger with this year's Easter display.

"First I thought, 'No, I won't decorate,'" she told the Canadian Broadcasting Corp., Saturday. "And then I thought. 'Yeah, I will, and I'll go worse, I will be tacky.'"

The result? A slew of bunnies on the lawn, dozens of eggs, and other decorations hanging from the porch.

Perron said she'd like the neighbor who wrote the note to come forward and meet her family in person.

She even invited them to dinner.

"Happy Easter to whoever you are," she said.
