While regular pillow fights at home have existed for a while, the massive scale organized pillow fights worldwide are a relatively new phenomenon. The origin of this holiday is not very clear, but in the last decade or so many pillow fights have been arranged worldwide on this day.
On the pillow fight day volunteers organize flash mob pillow fights in the city squares or large open grounds central to the city. This enables people to gather easily at one point and enjoy the fun event. Internet is great tool to organize these events and get people to attend them. This is the starting point for a pillow fight event. Once you post the message on the social media sites such as Facebook and Twitter it goes viral and you can expect a huge turnout. In the invite make sure to spell out the rules of the game. Dos and don’ts should be made very clear to avoid any untoward incidents. Also when you are expecting a crowd, wait for the venue to fill up before starting the fight. Remember not to force stop the fight. A typical fight lasts for at least an hour.
