[OPEN] [S] NPC Holiday Decorations won't go away after holiday is over

[ Edited ]
★★★★ Novice

Product: The Sims 4
Platform:PC
Which language are you playing the game in? Suomi
How often does the bug occur? Every time (100%)
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? All expansion packs Outdoor Retreat, Spa Day, Dine Out and Parenthood Kids Room Stuff and Cool Kitchen Stuff
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Make a holiday that has decorations. Play through the holiday until it ends and the few days afterwards.
What happens when the bug occurs? The neighboring houses won't take off their decorations. If a community lot was visited during the holiday, it won't also take off decorations.
What do you expect to see? The neighboring houses and all community lots visited during the holiday should take off their decorations after the holiday is finished.
Have you installed any customization with the game, e.g. Custom Content or Mods? Never used.
Did this issue appear after a specific patch or change you made to your system? Neutral/Not Sure 

There appears to be an issue where the holiday decorations (the ones on fences, eaves and so on) won't go away from other lots. All of the houses in the neighborhood where my Sim lives in didn't have their decoration taken off, but this was fixed by repairing the game. However, the decorations on the community lot that my Sims visited during the holiday still has the holiday decorations, even after the repair.

Hi @DestroyerSims

please don't make all caps titles. It's considered screaming and against the TOS. Thanks

Also: It only happens for the NPC houses, right ? Not your own ? Seeing this too

Sorry, the title was an accident. Tried to copy from an other source.

 

Anyways, yes. It only happens to NPC houses.

I have the same problem, and I have all The Sims 4 game, (EP,SP,GP), start the holiday that has automatic decoration and then travel to another lot, then return to your neighborhood and when the holiday ends, the automatic decoration of the neighborhood is not removed

Same problem here.

Worth noting that (for me) the decorations change when there is a new holiday, but they never go away completely in-between.
The automatic decoration of fences on apartment lots go away if I play on that lot.

I'm having this issue, except its happening at my own house only from what I'm seeing. The decorations just won't go away!
