I can't decide what I'm going for... I can hardly wear glittery heels and a sparkly to prance around on the Wii and cook dinner...

But jeans and a t-shirt seems a bit un-special.

Dazzle me with yer yuletide ensembles, o mumsnetters!

I go for the heels and sparkly dress myself

I like dressing up for Christmas. Will be wearing last year's outfit as was ill last Christmas and didn't get to wear it.

having a 1970's theme this year so I think a long dress a la Margo Ledbetter will be in order for me.
DH will be sporting high waisted slacks and a nylon polo. (AS if, but he will grow a noustache!)

That would be a moustache.grin

Normal stuff. <slattern emoticon>

Normal 'at home' clothes.

A&F track pants and nice jumper. If I wore smart clothes I wouldn't be able to eat much, elasticated waists are the way forward for Xmas food binges.

umm jeans and a top

We don't do dressing up at Christmas. Some people would say DP doesn't do dressing up ever.

I make the effort to get dressed before midday but only 'cos DH's parents come round. That's quite good for me.

I have copied my sisters tradition and always wear a red top on Christmas day. I tend to start off wearing smart, dressy shoes, but they are usually off before dinner and my slippers are on!

i have been known to stay in my PJ's for a couple of days at christmas! i think if i didnt have to go out i would live in them!

Our family rule is that you have to wear the clothes you get given on Xmas day...

So presents are opened in PJs and dressing gowns, and then you get dressed.....

Good taste does not come into it, as issues of 'style', 'co-ordination' and so forth are not acceptable excuses for failure to wear gift items.

The only nod to common sense is that we are allowed to supplement gift items with pre-owned items if there are any 'gaps' in your outfit - which was very lucky the year I only got given a pair of pants and some socks grin.

I don't care that it's only November. I'll join in with you.

I had a throughly miserable Christmas Day last year and didn't even get dressed. With hindsight I think that made me feel even more miserable so this year I'm wearing this. At just £45.00, any gravy covered sprouts that leap off my fork won't have me ringing the Christmas Samaritans.

PoppyIsApain Tue 03-Nov-09 01:00:19

PJ's normally, but visiting family this year so best make an effort

eidsvold Tue 03-Nov-09 06:51:13

shorts and a t-shirt, possibly a tank top.

Phoenix4725firestarter Tue 03-Nov-09 08:26:06

I don't get this dressing up for Christmas Day thing if you are just at home.
