This is something I had never heard before. A pillow fight. Sounds like fun.

Now more than 100,000 have been invited to the Málaga pillow fight which is set for 11.30pm.

The idea for the Málaga gathering came from a 24 year old Argentinean who lives in the city, is brother to a man who has organised similar pillow fights in London and Paris.

The rules of the fight, if you want to go – are
1) Take a pillow
2) Dress in white or in pyjamas
3) Don’t hit anyone who does not have a pillow.

I have to say that I’ve heard about parties like this, actually I could see one, but just as a spectator, I didn’t take part in it.
I think it’s very funny and short as well, I mean, it lasted just ten minutes, but people there seemed very happy. I believe it should be a very good way to let off steam, because eventually people were relaxed ans a little bit tired….. don’t forget that it’s a fight…. a peaceful fight.
Anyway I’m sure that there are people who must be angry with this kind of events….I’m talking about the dustmen….
