New Delhi:  Turns out April 1st is not just April Fools' Day, it's also International Pillow Fight Day. Yes, that's now officially a thing so make sure you note it down in your calendar for next year. Public pillow fights were held in approximately 40 cities around the world on Saturday. Armed with fluffy - and preferably feather-filled - pillows and cushions, people of all ages got together in parks and other public spaces and battled it out. Some people wore their comfiest pyjamas while others were battle-ready with masks and goggles instead. Scroll down to see how hundreds of people traded (soft) blows in pillow fights around the world.

Pillow Fight Day was first celebrated nearly eight years ago. Since then, the event's organiser, The Urban Playground Movement, has seen the "movement" go global. The idea behind the day is to promote a free, outdoor event with the aim of bringing communities closer. In some cities, people collected pillows and bedding, among other things, to donate to homeless people in their communities. Now that's something we can get behind.
