Everyone knows about Labor Day, St. Patrick’s Day and Presidents’ Day, but did you realize there’s a designated day to celebrate Pillow Fighting? Believe it or not, it exists – and it’s Saturday, April 2nd.

So, what exactly is National Pillow Fight Day? We were hard pressed to find out a reason why it exists (other than it’s a “good feeling”), but according to, many cities throughout the world – including some major cities in the United States – participate in the annual event. We’re guessing it has something to do with stress relief and community involvement.

Regardless, none are scheduled for North Carolina, but maybe you can have an impromptu Pillow Fight with family, friends and neighbors this weekend. Possibly even start a new tradition. If you do, happy celebrating – and remember to use soft pillows.
