CLEVELAND — After spending the holiday season welcoming visitors to the Christmas Story House, Ralphie is putting away his bunny suit and heading inside to scheme his way to a Red Ryder BB gun until next Christmas.

The 20-foot Ralphie dressed in pink bunny suit pajamas given to him by his Aunt Clara occupied the yard space next to the Christmas Story House for the month of December.

On New Year's Day, Ralphie was seen planted face down in the mud after strong winds hit the area on New Year's Eve.

On Wednesday, reps for the Christmas Story House said they were deflating Ralphie and putting him away until next season.

For many Christians, the Epiphany marks the end of the Christmas season.

For Clevelanders who worship at the altar of the leg lamp, you're looking at it.

The Christmas Story House Blew up the inflatable in November to welcome runners at the finish line of the Christmas Story Run.
