Several places in the world carried out large public pillow wars to mark the occasion of the International pillow fight day on Saturday.
Several hundred people took part in  the pillow war in Liberty Square in Taipei, Taiwan, and the celebration continues all over the world throughout the day.
Both Halmstad in Sweden, Copenhagen in Denmark and Helsinki in Finland will celebrate the occasion, but the tradition has not yet reached Norway, according to a website dedicated to the celebration.
The rules are simple: Bring a soft pillow and use it to strike other people – but not too hard, the aforementioned website writes.
In New York, the participants get the opportunity to donate their pillows  to charity. Last year over 1,500 pillows  were donated to organizations working for the homeless, according to AOL.
