How would you explain the first sentence in the context?

 

The village wakes up in a hurry, whilst the sun seems to struggle with the job as Mother does. Last night was the party for Christmas Eve. Today she will sleep until noon, then wake up with one hand across her forehead, the frilled elbows of her dressing gown shuddering. Her voice like a Browning machine rifle sending the house girls running for her headache powders. And everyone else out of the house.

How would you explain the first sentence? What kind of job does the sun struggle with?
Thanks!

    The job would be the sun rising in the morning sky.

    After a party everyone in the village (including the mom) has trouble getting up in the morning because they went to sleep late the night before.
