About National Wear Your Pajamas to Work Day
A fun, quirky day to roll out of bed and go straight to work. This holiday always falls on the weekday after Tax Day because having a casual day at work is the perfect way to recover.
In 2004, Pajamagram launched a campaign celebrating Wear Your Pajamas to Work Day as a reward for the late nights working on taxes.
The word pajama comes from the Hindustani pāy-jāma.
The original pyjāmā are loose, lightweight trousers fitted with drawstring waistbands and worn by many Indian Muslims, as well as Sikhs and Hindus, and later adopted by Europeans during British East India Company rule in India.
