This might be the only holiday better than Halloween. Crazy folks everywhere from Istanbul to Harere, Zimabwe are participating. And New Yorkers are of course joining in–right here in Washington Square Park!
The fight starts tomorrow at 3 p.m. and lasts three hours. The ground rules:
+ Soft, feather-free pillows only!
+ Swing lightly, many people will be swinging at once.
+ Do not swing at people without pillows or with cameras.
+ Remove glasses beforehand! (I learned that one the hard way.)
+ Deposit pillows in donation boxes or take them with you.*
+ Jammies are welcome.
* Preferably the former, as the event collected over 1500 pillows for homeless shelters last year.
Lastly, don’t forget the ultimate pillow fight rule that still stands from when you were a kid: play nice!
