Happy Happy PJ Day!
I have to admit, I never knew there was an actual Wear Your Pajamas to Work Day for the general public. When I taught elementary school, we often had Wear Your Pajamas to School Day. It was always a part of a greater Right to Read Week or Spirit Week. The whole staff would join the kiddos in wearing PJs. We would do up our hair in curlers, wear fuzzy slippers and cozy robes, carry teddy bears, and bring our favorite bedtime storybooks. So I am super excited that this is actually a national observance. I wonder how many business people have milk and cookies and read picture books on this day?
Go ahead… don your comfy pjs, wrap yourself up in your blankie, and enjoy some great bedtime picture books today!
