This is just an idea I'm throwing out there. Use it if you like.
-- One year I noticed my Sister-in-law was down. She wasn't going to "do" christmas decorations. So I asked her if she could help me out that year and decorate MY TREE, cause of bad health and all !!!. So her and I with a couple other ladies made a improptude party & decorated. Her spirts soared and I still get completments on my tree that year.
PS-- she decorated her daughters and hers afterwards.
