Anyone reading this blog is already likely to love pyjamas and onesies but even you may be a bit surprised by this report from Ireland. According to a study by Just Eat, admittedly not necessarily independent, 66% of respondents said they’d prefer a night in on Valentines Day so they can eat in their pyjamas; another 17% said they would be staying in because it means they don’t need a date. Who says romance is dead? Italian food is no longer the most popular food ordered on February 14th as our love for Asian takeaway continues to grow. But Italian food still came out on top when it came to first date food, with respondents saying they’d want to get to know their date over some pizza or pasta. Remember the spaghetti scene in Lady and the Tramp? The Marketing Director for Just Eat in Ireland said: “Valentine’s Day is an occasion when couples can feel under pressure to express their love by going out but it seems that couples and singletons alike would rather stay in and indulge in their favourite take-out food before sharing a tub of ice-cream on the most romantic night of the year.” And now the good news is that if you love pyjamas you don’t have to stay in. According to the Express, Pizza Hut has just announced it is opening pyjama safe zones at its restaurants in Manchester. Designed to provide a safe haven for all pyjama and onesie lovers staff will be on hand to offer customers fluffy bathrobes and cosy pizza blankets. Head of Communications at Pizza Hut said: “We hope our ‘Pyjama Safe’ and ‘Pyjama Free’ zones provide retreats for like-minded lounge lovers and a welcomed break for those looking to escape the frenzy.” But if you love pyjamas don’t assume that everywhere in the world is as welcoming. The owner of a bar in Malaga Spain has decided to ban those wearing pyjamas (so far the adult onesie craze has not hit Spain) on the grounds of hygiene and decency. A sign (in Spanish of course) outside the bar translates as: “Attention. No admission to anyone wearing pyjamas or dressing gown.” It is not uncommon in parts of Spanish cities for locals to be seen wearing pyjamas, dressing gowns or slippers on the streets. Staff at the bar said that several tourists had assumed there was a hospital close by, to account for the unusual number of customers wearing sleepwear. So if you love pyjamas beware of cultural sensitivity.
