Has to be assigning every task to herself. Every year, I do everything, the baking, the buying and wrapping (although dh helps wrap) cooking dinner, arranging the days with family, sorting and arranging everything in fact. I get cross and stressed and yet... I just don't trust anyone else to help. The beautiful mince pies could be made by me and the kids, but they won't be so neat. I could let my dh buy presents for his family and just worry about mine, but he'll just be ringing me for my opinion so I may aswell do it. I could just make dh sort out the family arrangements, but I know he'll forget. No one does it quite like me 😂😂 anyone else relate? Was the same growing up!

It's called X-masochism.

Some people just enjoy it
