With Hari Raya around the corner, families everywhere are decking out their houses with colourful lights and decorations

Sometimes, these preparations can get a little competitive between neighbours.

Recently, numerous videos on social media have gone viral for showing how families flaunt their decorative lights at home and comparing their setups with their neighbours.

A couple of videos in particular have tickled Malaysians.

In one video posted by user @oby.max__ on TikTok, he showed the front of his house being decorated with lights

The video then panned to his neighbour's house, with brighter, disco-like lights that were seemingly better than his.

"Alhamdulillah, I thought only my house was the nicest with these lights, it turns out the person next door wants to compete. What lights are they using? It looks like a nightclub! I thought I already won, they also want to win too!" he was heard saying in the video.

Shortly after, another video came up from the neighbour's side, showing off their Hari Raya light display

The neighbour's video, posted by another TikTok user, @iejamurad, showed the same disco lights and brighter display, before panning to what looked like user @oby.max__'s house.

"When you don't want to lose to your neighbours," the caption playfully wrote.

@iejamurad Bila kau taknak kalah dengan jiran. Habis semua lampu dibawanya keluar #raya Raya Raya Raya - DOLLA

Malaysians were amused by the rivalry, pointing out that the two neighbours' videos popped up back to back on their 'For You' page on TikTok

One user commented on @oby.max__'s video and said, "I came from your neighbour's video. They really don't want to lose!"

Another asked @iejamurad if they were preparing the house for a concert.

"I prefer war with decorative lights than war with fireworks," one user commented on @iejamurad's video.

Another user commented on @oby.max__'s video, saying, "Both of them look nice. Good job. It's fun to see healthy competition like this. (We) don't need kuih raya to feel festive."
