Many going the extra mile to spread some holiday cheer this year

It's Good News

EAST GREENWICH, R.I. (WPRI) — The Christmas spirit shining extra bright this holiday season with light displays near and far.

One West Warwick homeowner’s elaborate light display gained so much attention, their neighbor felt the need to do the next best thing.

Instead of trying to compete, the neighbor just simply put up a light display saying “ditto.” No doubt getting a laugh from many and arguably leaving just as much, if not more of an impression on their community.
