NATIONAL SLEEPOVER DAY
On May 9th, National Sleepover Day provides an opportunity once again for girls to confide in their friends in a way that can be inspiring, therapeutic, and confidence-building. Sleepovers play an important role in both friendships and memory-making. It’s a time when women and girls share stories and realize the more we’re different, the more we’re alike.
A sleepover offers more than just movies and gossip. It’s an opportunity to be among friends and be yourself. Let your hair down or put it up. Tell hair-raising stories and laugh until you cry or cry until you laugh. Either way, you’ll be among friends, and everyone there thinks you’re smart and beautiful, strong, and courageous, too. And if they don’t. Well, they soon will because at sleepovers, we tend to bare our souls.
HOW TO OBSERVE #NationalSleepoverDay
Celebrate with a sleepover. Bring out the pillows and comfy pjs. Pop lots of popcorn and pick out your favorite movies. Plan makeovers, manis, and pedis. It’s an excellent time to catch up and unwind. Share your deepest secrets and express yourselves, too. Sleepovers encourage bonding and boost friendships, too.
Join in the celebration by sharing your sleepover memories by using #NationalSleepoverDay and #SleepintheBare on social media.
