Feathers fly in far-reaching fights

Prepare yourself for one of the more ridiculous phrases seen on CNN.com:

 

Yesterday, April 2, was International Pillow Fight Day.

 

Yep, it's true. People around the world came out to public parks and squares to participate in the feather-fueled free-for-all. And iReporters across the globe documented the phenomenon.

 

In Seattle, Washington, Kyle Aevermann organized the pillow fight for the second year in a row. He says about 200 people showed up to battle it out under the Space Needle, even though - true to Seattle form - there were a few raindrops in the air.

 

 

Chris Morrow spotted pillow fighters in costume at the San Diego, California fight. Some were dressed as anime characters, some were in pajamas, and some were just in random wacky outfits. Altogether, about 50 people showed up.

 

 

And in Paris, 200 fighters battled it out below the Eiffel Tower as spectators looked on. "It was very funny to see the event in this area of France because of the Eiffel Tower and other well known French icons in the area," says Jean-Pierre Bijouard.

 

Bijouard didn't participate this year - he was just shooting photos - but after seeing the happy atmosphere of the pillow fight, he says that next year he'll be tempted to pick up a pillow and join the glee.
