INDIANAPOLIS -- In a sure sign of the holiday season, the iconic cherub appeared Wednesday night on the clock outside the Carson's in downtown Indianapolis.
2017 is the 70th year the bronze cherub has appeared at the corner of Meridian and Washington streets, except in 1992.
When the downtown L.S. Ayres store closed in January 1992, the cherub didn't find its way to the clock as it always does on Thanksgiving eve.
This led to outrage from Indianapolis residents who were just looking to see the 1,200 pound cherub that season.

The cherub returned on Dec. 17, 1992.
Legend has it, the cherub keeps watch over holiday shoppers until Santa can take over on Christmas Eve.
