International Pillow Fight Day was created in 2008. It is a free event organised by Urban Playground Movement that takes place annually in over 100 different cities around the world.

  3. 1. Describe what happened in the event- Thousands of people participated in a really enjoyable event. Lots of crazy people had their own pillows each and went wild and had a big fun pillow fight. People from all around the world came to London and participated in a fun awesome event. Crazy people were going wild and hitting everyone with their pillows for a fun day. Lots of people had so much fun with pillows and all the feathers flying around and taking pictures and getting up high and hitting people and mucking around. People going outside and having fun.

    2. Explain if you would like to be part of International Pillow Flight Day. Why/Why not?- I would like to do it because it’s when everyone comes together and have so much fun and have a big laugh and meet new people. I would not want to do it because if someone hits you with a pillow they can hit you to hard and hurt you. I would not want to do it because if you are sitting down you can get stepped on, or if you have a camera and you are taking picture someone can knock you and your camera could break.

    3. Describe another special day that you would like to see happen. Why- I would like an International pet friendly day because so people can see what kinds of pets there are and meet new friendly pets. Also so there pets can meet other pets and muck around and have a fun day. Also so the owners and the pets can have a activity day. The purpose of the International pet friendly day would be- So people and pets can come together and meet new friends and have a fun day out side with lots of activities.

  4. 1. Describe what happened in the event.
    People were playing pillow fights and having a lot of fun people were arrogantly hitting people with the pillows that they ripped open and feathers were flying everywhere! The purpose of this event is to get people out and about!

    2. Explain if you would like to be part of International Pillow Flight Day. Why/Why not?
    Yes! This would be so fun to be part in an International day but fighting with pillows has its disadvantages you could be hit really hard of get the end of the pillow stuck in your eye really fun but still dangerous.

    3. Describe another special day that you would like to see happen. Why?
    International Bubble Wrap Day!
    Popping bubble wrap is pretty fun and I would like to see it happen because it would make people use bubble wrap in their valuables or it gets people into a group which Is pretty social!

  5. In this video, a lot of people came from all over the world, to Trafalgar Square, (London) to participate in an exciting day of Pillow Fighting. I saw people drastically hitting each other with their feather-filled pillows. I think they were having a lot of fun because I could hear lots of joyful screams and laughing.

    I guess I would like to participate in the International Pillow Fighting Day, only because I saw how much fun the participants were having. Maybe if they charged each participant a dollar coin or something to raise money for a charity or foundation, I would be more excited to join in.

    If I got to choose a worldwide day that everyone celebrated, I would probably choose the Ice Bucket Challenge because it is something that takes the courage away from you, and makes you become more of a brave person. If I was in charge of this day, they WOULD be charged a dollar coin to raise money and awareness for a charity or foundation.

  6. Describe what happened in the event.
    In this outstanding and amazing event, multiple people of different sexes, young and old, all fought against each other beating them with pillows. The video we watched, the extreme pillow fight was held at, ‘Trafalgar Square’. This event is held in an astonishing 100+ different countries. I would imagine that most countries think that this event is a waste of time, I might be wrong, it seems like a lot of people like competing in this event. Mr. Andrew said that people do this event so that most of the countries around the world get outside and have fun with other citizens.

    Explain if you would like to be part of International Pillow Flight Day. Why / Why not?
    I want to be a part of the international pillow fight day because it gives me a chance to go outside and meet people that I don’t even know. I think this will also give me a better relationship with the people that don’t really like to go out or the people who don’t often hang out with me. I also want to be a part of international pillow day because it is a national competition and who wouldn’t like to compete in a national competition. You could be caught on camera and become famous.
    Describe another special day that you would like to see happen. Why?
    If I were to choose a day that the nation could have once a year it would be, INTERNATIONAL SIDE-STEP DAY. I would have this day because it gives people who don’t go outside, a better chance to move around in a fun way. I would choose this to be on the 14th of October because 14 is my favorite number and October is my favorite month.
