International Pillow Fight Day

International Pillow Fight Day is a holiday that’s observed on the first Saturday in April and is celebrated by people all around the globe. It’s a day for people to put their cares behind them and take part in a little bit of childish fun. Children have enjoyed pillow fights ever since the invention of pillows, and now it’s time for the adults to join in on the fun.

So, let’s all grab our favorite pillows, gather together a group of friends, and then have a nice pillow fight! Oh, and don’t forget to bring some snacks. After all, pillow fights can really make you hungry.

The History Of International Pillow Fight Day

Believe it or not, International Pillow Fight Day began in commemoration of the movie Fight Club. After that movie came out, men started making Pillow Fight Clubs in cities all around the world.

This holiday grew out of that movement and has now become an international holiday. Of course, people no longer have to join these fight clubs to enjoy this holiday. People can organize their own.
