I recently got married and when I returned back to the office, I found a "congratulations" banner taped up in my cubicle. How long should I leave this up before taking it down?

Many good questions generate some degree of opinion based on expert experience, but answers to this question will tend to be almost entirely based on opinions, rather than facts, references, or specific expertise. If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.
If it is in the way, leave it for a day and then move it. Otherwise, give it a few days and see if anyone says anything. "How long are you going to leave that up?" or "I would have thought you'd take it down by now."
Reuse it. Find an opportunity to "congratulate" someone else and put it up in their cube.
You can always ask another coworker. Some people may be more sensitive about this type of thing, but there's no way to really know.
Have your picture taken in front of it and save it for posterity.
I'd take it down at days end if no one else had. I'd thank everyone and tell them I want to keep it. Then roll it up and take it home.
