What a fun idea… a special night to make some wonderful family memories for your kids (and yourself)! November 19 is National Family Pajama Night™ – an evening devoted to family togetherness, old-fashioned fun and – what could be more comfy? – pajamas!

Visit the National Family Pajama Night microsite  to check out a video of kids sharing their wishes for the night, pledge your own participation, review “memory maker” ideas, check out tips from celebrity families, and post your own ideas for the big night.

There’s even a community service aspect to this fun event:  National Family Pajama Night is sponsored by The Company Store and Company Kids, which are celebrating their 100th anniversary.  Once the goal of 20,000 Family Pajama Night pledges is reached, The Company Store will make a donation of $20,000 worth of PJs to Pajama Program, a 501(c)3 not-for-profit organization that provides new pajamas and books to children in need in the United States.

For now, mark your calendar and get ready for some simple pleasures. Like playing board games. Watching movies with a big tub of popcorn. Reading storybooks. Coloring. Dancing to favorite songs (both young and old!). Building a fort in the living room. Any ideas for your family? The best part (we think), is planning to do all these fun family activities in soft, comfy flannel pajamas. Even better – matching family pajamas from The Company Store!

Visit The Company Store’s Facebook page to share your own family’s unique ideas for the night.

We can’t wait for November 19! Let’s all do something silly, simple, memorable and fun!
