Each year on April 16th, National Wear Your Pajamas To Work Day allows us a reprieve after meeting a late-night deadline shuffling receipts and adding columns to file our taxes.
While some people call this day “the best holiday of the year,” it was created for fun. Wearing pajamas to work creates a laid back and relaxed atmosphere especially for those accountants, tax preparers and last-minute filers. Wearing pajamas offers a little relief from the nailbiting and stress that often comes with filing taxes. The day helps to let go of the anxiety and offers a few more minutes of sleep for those who pushed the deadline to the limit.
If you’ve been working from home this last bit due to Coronavirus, you have probably done a little of this. Some not quite aware of their cameras views…. So keep it PG rated and make sure if you turn your back it’s all covered.
If you’re staying home, I shop for groceries, work, and play, in my pajamas. In today’s technological age, you can star in your own show and get your work and household tasks completed without taking of your bunny slippers.
Appropriate styles of pajamas would include tops and bottoms, of course. Wear the cozy flannel or snazzy silk. Cotton always breathes so well, too. Cartoon characters are always fun. But, be sure to cover your feet, too. Slippers or other footwear are required.
HOW TO OBSERVE #WearYourPajamasToWorkDay
Wear your favorite pajamas to work. Make a party of it and coordinate with coworkers. Don’t forget your fuzzy slippers and robe. Award prizes to the one who wears it best. Give a gift of pajamas to your tax preparer to show your thanks, even if that person is your dad or a close personal friend. If you work from home, this is a prime opportunity to wear your pajamas and invite the rest of the world to enjoy the comfort dressing down for the day. Take group photos and post them use #WearYourPajamasToWorkDay to post on social media.
