With Holiday Week in full swing, students and teachers wore their pajamas to school on Dec. 1 after clambering out of their beds, either unwilling to change into their regular clothes or simply in spirit of the holidays. Assistant Principal Mike White, sophomore Mikaela Lee and freshman Bryce Nevitt were asked why they decided to dress in their nightwear to school.


Assistant Principal Mike White

El Estoque: Why did you decide to participate in Pajama Day today?
Mike White: Because it’s my favorite day of the year. You get to wear pajamas to school! I wear my flannels, you don’t have to dress up, you go out and then here you are.

EE: Where did you get your pajamas?
MW: These are a gift from my mom, Christmas last year.

EE: Is this the first time you’ve received pajamas as a gift from somebody?
MW: Oh no, my mom gets me a pair every Christmas. It’s like a tradition.

EE: Is there anything you find particularly unique about this pair?
MW: They’re really warm, because my parents live in Montana, and it’s cold, so they’re really thick and really warm, as opposed to California’s flannel, which is cold.

EE: Would you consider buying another pair in the future?
MW: No, ‘cause I’ll get them for Christmas.


Sophomore Mikaela Lee

El Estoque: Why did you decide to participate in Pajama Day today?
Sophomore Mikaela Lee: I woke up late, and didn’t really want to change, so I just wore my pajamas to school.

EE: Where did you get your pajamas?
ML: I stole them from my sister. I think they’re very sexy. It has Minnie Mouse on them, and very nice hearts and coloring.

EE: Do you have any other pairs of pajamas?
ML: Yeah, I like collecting pajama pants. I have three pairs, [my favorites are] the ones I’m wearing now.


Freshman Bryce Nevitt

El Estoque: Why did you decide to participate in Pajama Day today?
Freshman Bryce Nevitt: It’s easy to do.

EE: Where did you get your pajamas?
BN: Probably like Old Navy or something.

EE: Is there anything you find particularly unique about this pair?
BN: I don’t know, I don’t wear them very much, I just thought I would wear them for pajama day. I wear sweatpants, or gym shorts.
