Pope Foundation Dazzles With New Christmas Decorations

Generoso Pope Foundation Tuckahoe David Christmas Lights

The Generoso Pope Foundation is located in the heart of Tuckahoe, NY and is the focal point of the town square. It is famous for it’s Christmas decorations during the holiday season. The elegant decorations accentuate the building’s grandeur and beauty. Many people are seen stopping to take pictures of the building, and even ask to see the interior decorations. Over 10,000 christmas lights grace the building for a holiday spectacle. A 12 foot wreath is faceted onto the facade of the building with a giant red bow with ribbon flowing down. Christmas trees with matching bows are placed on either side of the columns. Wreaths with bows are hung along the sides of the building. Christmas trees adorn the side foyer, decorated with hundreds of ornaments.

This year, the Generoso Pope Foundation unveiled a new centerpiece to the holiday collection. The idea was to replace the existing Christmas tree in the grand foyer for something bigger and better. Towering 18 feet high with almost 400 poinsettia plants, the one of a kind Christmas tree is a show stopper. “Word spread around town pretty quickly and visitors have been pouring in,” AJ Pope said. “People love to see our decorations. We have so many people who say ‘It’s not Christmas until the Pope Foundation decorates!'” Weighing over 1,000 pounds, the tree was self-watered, with a new technology that allowed gel packs of water to nourish the plants for a month.

The poinsettia tree can be seen for free during operating hours at the Generoso Pope Foundation.
