Need to de-stress? Pick up a pillow!

8 Comments

How does pillow fighting with complete strangers sound? The act, to relieve stress. Super random right? I chuckled when I first heard about it. The thought of attending (to take pictures of course) subtly started to grow.

Armed with my camera, I travelled to Green Park in central London, venue for the event, and waited for the warriors to arrive with their pillows, ready for ‘battle’.

Apparently, Saturday 2nd April marked ‘International Pillow Fight Day’ where people around the world hurled pillows at each other, in a polite way, of course, in this quite bizarre event.

Some people naturally took it more seriously than others but it all looked pretty harmless.

It was great fun to watch, and snap, the antics of people taking aim and pummelling each other.  It proved to be a really great stress buster!

  1. It does seem a bit bizarre, doesn’t it, to pillow-fight with strangers? But it also looks like it was quite cathartic and fun — at least for some of the people in your images. It makes me wonder whether a good, long pillow fight may be just the thing for whatever is ailing us over here in the U.S. 🙂

    • Hahaha you made me chuckle Heather. Towards the end of the ‘battle’ though the revellers looked like they all let out a huge exhale that had been stifling them for quite some time plus they looked rather exhausted. If I had a pillow I definitely would’ve joined in – such fun :). Thank you for stopping by.
