Pillow feathers flew through the air and teddies soared as thousands took part in the 'International Pillow Fight Day’ flashmob in New York on Saturday. Participants enjoyed swinging and whacking each other and were doing it for a cause – the pillows are eventually donated to shelters for the homeless. 'International Pillow Fight Day’ is held on the first Saturday of April, with residents of many big cities around the world taking part.
