While discussing Slumber Party Massacre my friend mentioned there was a black and white version. Which made me think when did they start having sleepovers? I’m talking about a group of girls going over to a friend’s house and talking about boys and such. Did they have sleepovers like that in the 20’s?
Another thought is where did pillow fights originate? At said sleepovers? And if so was it shortly after the pillow was created?

It was back in the 15th century when Christopher Columbus traveled to what we now know as America. He was a notorious ladies man so the fathers of the native american daughters would gather them all up and put them in tents in order to keep them from Columbus. A group of warriors would surround the tent and protect them while they were in “slumber” and the name “slumber party” soon followed.

I’ve been inviting girls over to talk about boys in their jammies since the early 1870s. I know that it became popular shortly after, at least in New York City.
