Thank you for your question. Andrew is competing in the 2018 Olympics and the sign said Way To Go Andrew. We temporarily removed it to until results from the 2018 Olympics are in. Currently there is a large American Flag there and Red, White & Blue Lights lighting up some of our trees to support all USA Athletes!

About when, are indoor and outdoor Christmas decorations taken down?
Thank you for your question. Christmas decorations start going up just after Thanksgiving and are displayed well into January and February. Live trees are displayed for as long as possible into January. Exterior decor stays up and exterior lights are lit well into February. It's winter wonderland for as long as possible!
