On April 16, lay aside your usual work attire and replace it with your pajamas to celebrate Wear your Pajamas to Work Day.
While the origins of this fun holiday are unknown, the date of the holiday suggests that it was meant to give taxpayers in the United States a day to relax after Tax Day, April 15.
In recent years, many celebrities have participated in the day by showing up in public in their pajamas.
Pajams, payjamas, or jammies is a loose piece of clothing, not unlike pants, worn on the lower part of a person's body. While most people wear them to bed, they were once, and still are, part of a normal outfit worn by men and women during the day in many parts of the Middle East and South Asia.
How to Celebrate?
Wear your pajamas to work. Make sure you do inform your supervisor and your co-workers about the holiday.
Share pictures of you in your pajamas at your office desk with family and friends.
