There are plenty of strange holidays out there -- from National Ice Cream Day to National Puppy Day, you probably think you've seen them all. Well, think again, because this past Saturday was International Pillow Fight Day!

For three hours, people all around the world, from Amsterdam to Dallas, grabbed a feather-filled sack and headed down to a local park to partake in some fun -- and at Washington Square Park, where New York's pillow fight was held, people were also encouraged to partake in some charity. At the end of the fight, participants were able to donate their pillows to homeless shelters all throughout the city.

The editors at AOL.com were able to participate in the New York city event, and with the help of Kanvas, the popular app that allows users to create art, videos and much more, they documented it for our forever-pleasure!
