Yes, I have the same thing. At night I get hot sometimes so I take off my pajama's and i see a bunch of sparks, it's actually really cool. It is because of static electricity.

hahahahha. I'm glad you think is cool. It freaks me out and then I am terrified of touching anything made of metal. LOL

dont worry, it doesnt hurt at all, maybe a little pinch about as hard as a baby squeezing your finger but beside that it is actually pretty cool.

Dry air; lower humidity when we're all running our furnaces.

Static electricity. It happens more during this time because everyone where more of the fur and wool.
