A woman has been slammed for saying it’s ‘manky’ to stay in your pyjamas on Christmas day.

The anonymous Mumsnet user, believed to be from the UK, took to the forum and penned: ‘Am I being unreasonable to think it’s a bit manky to spend Xmas Day in your pyjamas?     

‘Are these the new PJs from the Christmas Eve box that you’ve slept in all night or do you shower and put a fresh pair on?’

Unsurprisingly, many had strong opinions on the subject, and were quick to take to the comments section.

‘My manky DC stay in their pyjamas every Christmas Day if we are not going out. They love it, little filthy beasts what they are,’ wrote one, while a second commented:

‘I wasn’t going to spend this Christmas in PJs but I’m tempted now. It’s comfy, hardly “dirty” and if you’re staying at home – why not?’ 

A third joked: ‘Good job I haven’t invited you then. Me and DD are looking forward to spending the day in our new PJs, dressing gowns and slippers!

‘We’ll have a lovely bath in the morning, using our new smellies, then a facial and nails while eating Quality St. Mind your new judgey pants don’t give you a wedgie.’

The woman in question seemed to direct particular disgust at those who stay in their nightwear while tucking into their festive feast.

‘It’s not exactly a John Lewis tableau is it?’ she continued. ‘Parents and children tucking into their turkey/nut roast in their manky nightwear.’  

Many were taken aback by the comment and questioned whether the woman in question only owns one pair of pyjamas (pictured)

But many struggled to see how anyone’s pyjamas could get that ‘manky’ in the first place. 

‘How are they dirty?’ questioned one. ‘You’ve done nothing in them. Also I have been known to wear the same two days in a row and I hate to think what you’d do if I told you how often I wash my bra!’

A second commented: ‘Do you only own one pair of pyjamas?’ while a third simply replied: ‘No, it’s absolutely heavenly.’

Another told how due to having a five-week-old baby, she plans to get up, shower and ‘put clean PJ’s on and just lounge’ – as it means when she’ll inevitably need a nap, she’ll be ‘dead comfy.’   

Meanwhile, others told how they much prefer getting dressed up so they can feel special on December 25.

‘Each to their own but I wouldn’t,’ wrote one. ‘I get dressed up, do make up and hair then I’m ready to hit the kitchen, cooking my turkey in a party dress! Quite strange now I think about it really but I like to look nice on Christmas day.’

A second penned: ‘I love a pyjama day, but not on Christmas day,’ while a further commented: ‘We do get dressed into nice clothes, but I’d be very happy to slob about in my PJs to be honest. Each to their own!’ 

Others admitted that while they are partial to a day in their pyjamas, they wouldn’t dream of it on Christmas day (pictured)
