A less overwhelming way to do the Christmas tree

Every year, I'm one of the many who put up a tree ON Thanksgiving Day. After the dishes have been cleared, I turn on the Christmas music and put up the tree, lights, ornaments, and all the trimmings. It takes hours. By the time I'm done, I am so SICK of decorating.
I've done it differently this year. We put up the tree yesterday. But that's all we did. Today, we'll string the lights. Tomorrow, the garland. Thursday is set aside as ornament day, but we'll probably divide that job into two days. And by the weekend, we'll have a fully decorated holiday home, with much less stress and more enjoyment.
