Guests resting at a sleepover
A sleepover, also known as a pajama party or a slumber party is a party most commonly held by children or teenagers, where a guest or guests are invited to stay overnight at the home of a friend.
Typical participant activities include staying up late, talking, eating and playing until falling asleep, which sometimes never happens for a few high energy guests. Sometimes sleepovers involve another activity prior to the actual sleepover. For example, dinner at a restaurant, skating, or other scheduled events. Sleepovers are usually held at one participant's house, with other guests sometimes bringing their bedtime things, such as pillows or sleeping bags. Common activities include playing board games or video games, having pillow fights, watching movies, midnight feasts, playing party games such as Truth or Dare?, light as a feather, stiff as a board, and spin the bottle, building forts out of pillows and blankets, or, for girls, having a "spa night", in which girls polish their nails and toes and put on facial masks. Sleepovers are practiced by both girls and boys but are more common with girls.
