Revelers consisting mainly of young Chinese white collar workers and students enjoy a good pillow bash to blow of steam at the capital city's first pillow fight party ahead of the new year celebrations on 30 December. Pillow fight parties are gaining popularity among young office workers and students in China as an outlet for stress release as they face increasing pressure at work and school.
