Pillow fight! April 2 saw people in more than 100 cities around the world gather to celebrate the fine skill of wielding a pillow. “International Pillow Fight Day” started as part of the “Urban Playground” movement, meant to get people off their couches and into the city interacting with strangers. And interact they do, with feathers and abandon flying. See the full gallery of Washington’s pillow fight here.
