Easy. In the privacy of ones home ,it is uncomfortable to be all bundled up.That's quite interesting. Years ago, I stayed a few days with a friend of the family who lived in San Francisco. She is a lady of my gran's generation, so not that young, but the moment she came indoors she removed any warm clothing. It was winter time, but not that cold, however, she refused to wear a jumper or anything warm in the house - she just turned the heating up to the point where I felt sick. I kept the windows in my bedroom wide open day and night, so I could sleep without being too warm.
When I asked her why she did that, she said she was an American, and not like those people in Europe and the UK, who had to wear warm clothing indoors. I still don't get the point, but I felt it would be ill-mannered to question her further - it was her house and her country, and I was only a guest.
