WESTLAND, Mich., Dec. 15 (UPI) -- A Michigan woman's Christmas display is going viral after she decided to piggyback on her neighbors' efforts with a simple arrow and a sign reading: "Ditto."

Jami Kelly, 34, of Westland, said she was inspired by images of other Christmas decorating shortcuts online to attach a few strings of colored lights to some plywood and arrange them to form the word "Ditto" and an arrow pointing at the extravagant display next door,

"We started doing lights and then we said, 'You know what, screw it,'" Kelly told The Detroit News. "We can't compare. Nothing measures up."

Kelly said another neighbor, Ryan Brown, helped her create the sign in about four hours.

"All my neighbors think it's hilarious," Kelly said.

She said even the neighbors next door complimented her humorous display.
