I think my husband might imagine that santa claus brings christmas – a woman, will your job be ignored?
Who to acquire gifts for children and family, who put on the christmas table offered and who decorates your home? In many families women do the christmas almost completely alone. Mostphotos

most Likely you have you read this already a bit tired of the whole christmas fuss. Gifts to acquire and wrap, christmas cards to write and send the processing, joulusiivo of thinking and eve eating of the design.

Should then buy a bigger ham than last year? Double and triple check: after all, all your gifts are sure to acquired? After all, home wrap, to tape, or should it buy?

This is called metatyön. The housework and other similar is namely more to do than they, well, made of: related organization, scheduling, planning...

And such is, unfortunately, often just the mother's responsibility. And christmas, if ever you needed a considerable amount metatyötä.

One of my colleagues was thinking, how her husband doesn't have a clue about where all the gifts come from. ”Maybe he still believes in santa claus,” he said.

So writes The guardian's editor with christmas-related workload, which women often take the laptop to.


Metatyöhön is ^ sometimes also the term tunnetyö. Tunnetyö-a term invented by the sociologist Arlie Hochschild is, however, not fully convinced, how the word refers today more than in the job description after consultation of emotion regulation.

the agent, for example, is expected to be positive and friendly, even though she had a bad day. Hochschildin definition tunnetyö of covers like this, but not, for example, the mother's work family christmas preparations in front of:

– Its meaning has been expanded too much, and often it refers to perfectionism: feeling that people have to create the perfect christmas, the sociologist told The Atlantic in an interview.

– I Think that compulsory work-related anxiety suppression is tunnetyö, but otherwise the term is in my opinion, become too commonly used, and its meaning is blurred.


Metatyö is the work related to the design work, which as such is suitable to describe christmas preparations: it ham can put because just to bake or christmas gifts to buy until after christmas eve (unless that is specifically agreed). If christmas wants to spend, this kind of organisation is almost essential.

Is the problem then hardship perfektionismissa or family among unequally divided in the preparatory work?

- Depends on the situation and in the family, but the answer can be either - or possibly both.

If metatyö threat to visit so pregnant, that it causes anxiety, something has to change, if christmas think wants to keep. Sometimes this means that one of the parents stepped in to help more. At times, the family pulled into the bends straight.

pre-made root vegetable purée birth of the box right there where I peeled, chopped and boiled carrots. Christmas siivouksenkin can do half-assed, if eve night to illuminate the room with just the candles - I saw cheer the auspices poodle is not going to make a note at all!
