    "stay home" and "stay at home"

    When do we use "stay home" and "stay at home"? Can they be used interchangeably?

    Thanks.

    My view is that STAY AT HOME is used commonly. I don't use stay home.

    Hi,
    "Stay at home" is usual in British English, "Stay home" is more American I think.
