Bed-in For Peace Day 2017 is on Monday, March 20, 2017: in For Peace Day - Who held a week-long bed-in for peace in the Amsterdam Hilton in 1969?
Monday, March 20, 2017 is Bed-in For Peace Day 2017. World Peace Day All around the world people are standing up for peace. Join them!
During the Vietnam War, in 1969, John Lennon and Yoko Ono held two, week-long Bed-Ins for Peace, which were their non-violent ways of protesting wars and promoting peace.Knowing their March 20, 1969 marriage would be a huge press event, John and Yoko decided to use the publicity to promote world peace.
They spent their honeymoon in Room 902 at the Amsterdam Hilton Hotel for a week between March 25 and March 31 and invited the world's press into their hotel room every day between 9 a.m. and 9 p.m.
John and Yoko's marriage, their first Bed-In, the Vienna press conference and their acorn event were all mentioned in the song The Ballad of John and Yoko.
Their peace campaign was met mostly with derision, and most journalists simply dismissed it as a publicity stunt.

Do you make your bed in the morning?
I do make my bed on a daily basis. It is the one thing that is 'easy' for me. Anything else that I expect to do, will have to wait until later or possibly never. The sheets I wash at least twice a week. I put out all of the garbage each and every day. There certainly is no reason to save it. I wish you a wonderful and fulfilling day. Peace!
I would have a bed-in for seven days w/ John Lennon (i don't think Yoko would be there... lol)! I think that idea was SO great to do! ;D
