Late Night Elves Decorate Metro Tree Sculpture

Once again, mysterious elves have taken it upon themselves to decorate the tree sculpture at one Gold Metro stop. Under cover of darkness, they work every December to bring a little holiday cheer to Metro riders. No tape or other permanent adhesives are ever used. They only use string and ribbon that does not harm the tree. After the holidays, the same elves sneak back and quietly take down the decorations like the good citizens they are. Three cheers for the holiday elves and let's hope they inspire a little more outsider guerilla decorating!
