Metaphor of the Day – National Christmas Tree Dies

After the national Christmas tree was damaged in storm, the park service replaced in March of 2011.  That tree has now died.  It is said that it had transplant shock.  The tree sits on the ellipse.  For those not familiar with the geography in DC, that is right near The White House.

The metaphors for this are never-ending.

They will be planting a new tree in October.
