A whirlwind of pillows bearing the names of bosses and teachers filled the air as hundreds of Chinese gathered to blow off stress in Shanghai, staging a massive pillow battle.

The annual event marked its fifth year with such a surge in interest from stressed young office workers and students that organisers held two nights of pillow fighting before Christmas Day and plan another for Friday.

"Nowadays there are many white-collar workers and students that are facing huge pressures at work and at school, so we hope to give them an outlet to release their stress before the end of the year," said Mr Eleven

Wang, the founder and mastermind behind the epic pillow fights.

"Sometimes we have pressure from our bosses, teachers and exams, so today we can go crazy. Everyone will get to write onto the pillows the names of their bosses, teachers and exam subjects, and enjoy and vent to the maximum," he added.

"After releasing the stress, we can once again face our daily life with joy." Pillows were handed out at the door as participants entered, then emotion was stoked by a rock concert, with many on the floor of the huge event space rocking and waving their pillows in time to the music.

Then came the fighting.

Pillows filled the air, with many combatants opting for throwing rather than using them to whack opponents. A few hapless participants shielded their heads with as many pillows as they could hold, but most ventured eagerly into the fray.

"I really enjoyed the fight, but my friend was useless. He joined in for two ticks and could not go on, he was afraid of getting beaten by other people," said 24-year-old Chen Yi.

"I've just been working so much (at the office) and never get to break out in a sweat, so it felt really good."

Stress relief reverses this effect, increasing the flow of lymphatic fluid, improving circulation and blood flow, and the distribution of nutrients and oxygen.
