My Baby Pajamas Fun Facts on Pajamas

Did you know pajamas originated in the Middle East?   Do you know what pajama means?  My Baby Pajamas thought we would share some fun facts on pajamas.   We just love pajamas!

Fact #1: The first people to wear pajamas according to Dictionary.com were men and women in Turkey, Iran and India. The word “pajama” stems from the Persian word pae — meaning ‘leg’ — and jamah, meaning ‘clothing garment’.

Fact #2: Pajamas are defined as night clothes with loose pants and a jacket.  Jacket? Really?  That does not sound comfortable.

Fact #3: Pajamas originated as “loose drawers or pants that were tied at the waist” — therefore the terms pajama pants or pajama bottoms are redundant:)

Fact #4:  2011, US Airways flight attendants escorted University of New Mexico football player, Deshon Marman off of a flight for wearing sagging pajama pants on a plane arguing that he violated their dress code. Only a week early than this incident, a cross dressing man wearing women’s underwear and no pants was allowed to board his flight despite complaints from other passengers.

Fact #5: In January 2012, Michael Williams, a commissioner in Caddo Parish, Louisiana, proposed an ordinance prohibiting people from wearing pajamas in public.

About Me:

Hello and welcome! I am a 40 something year old mom of two boys, living in Scottsdale, AZ with my husband Al. I started My Baby Pajamas in 2007 and have watched it grow and mature. I love to blog but am not much of a writer per say. I am a avid runner and love to compete in races. I like my yoga HOT and love to hike with my family and our pit bull mix dog, Chance. My favorite time is hanging with my family and cooking homemade dinners and hearing about everyone's day while my husband and I enjoy a glass of wine.
