Hats in bed

This ain't about what you think. I remember as a little kid my dad wearing a stocking cap to bed in the winter. I thought it was dumb. Well, last night I woke up and my head was cold. Had to wrap the comforter around my noggin. Tonight I think I'll wear a hat. Do other people wear hats to bed, or does this make me into a pervert or something?

Not weird. I wear a hoodie with the hood on my head frequently. UA sleeps with the window open (all year long) and it can get pretty cold at night. If it keeps you comfortable, wear it.

If it's needed to keep you warm it's fine.

If you wear it to be "cool", it's not.

Today we have insulation and good heating systems for houses. You shouldn't worry about cold heads. Now if you were camping or staying in a cabin with a fireplace as the only heat source, a hat might be a good idea.

Back when Ms. MillCreek 2.0 was going through menopause and was having her 'power surges', she would open the bedroom window in the middle of winter. I had to wear a wool knit cap on my bald head. So I don't think it is odd at all.

I've done it, sometimes I just can't stay warm unless I do. Also, you can save money by turning down the heat, and throwing on an extra blankie.

simply putting on this sleeping hat could be enough to allow one to lower the temperature in a house a degree or two. This would save valuable energy. Just saying... just because we have the luxury of heat doesn't mean we shouldn't conserve a bit.

Every time I wear a hat to bed, I wake up and it's gone.

Dang evil cat.

Ohhhhh, you guys are talking about touques. You see, in Canada a hat comes with a brim. A touque is sleep friendly ... although still weird. I prefer to go au-naturel.

I haven't worn a stitch of anything to bed since I was 12 years old, so a hat would be really weird!

Hat for the newborn, though, but that is a totally different situation, of course.

Central heating means that you don't need a hat...

Right that's the only time I've been that cold when trying to sleep.
