Birthday Suit

It is my birthday and someone overhears my friends say happy birthday to me.
Someone: Are you going to celebrate in your birthday suit?
Me: (Puzzled) I didn't buy one
Someone/Friends: (Laughing)
Me: (Still puzzled and never thought anything of it until...)

A few days later, I was listening to Usher's "Yeah" when I heard the phrase "I won't stop till I get them in their birthday suit" in Ludacris' rap. I immediately went to look it up because I figured it was some kind of style of suit worn on birthdays. I found out that it actually meant to wear nothing. It still did not make sense to me why "birthday suit" would mean naked. Then I read on and it was explained that you are born naked, hence "birth day suit." 

I know I usually include photos on my blog for the purpose of illustration. Sorry I have to refrain from doing that this time considering the topic.
