Holiday lights rivalry turns funny

- The community of Levittown, Long Island, is getting into the holiday spirit with plenty of Christmas decorations, inspiring a friendly rivalry between two houses. One home is elaborately decorated. The neighbor's one-word response: "Ditto."

Every year, the Engels adorn their house with lights, lights and more lights announcing loud and clear that Christmas is here.

And for years their neighbors the Paganellis took notice. They said their displays never came close to Engels' display. So this year, they just went with "Ditto" and an arrow pointing at the Engels' home. And the neighborhood certainly took notice.

Beyond the laughs, the neighbors are bringing the holiday spirit to those in need, shutting down this block for an annual holiday fundraiser. If you want to join this wonderful community for the fundraiser, you're invited to 7 Coachman Lane in Levittown on December 10.
