The first anniversary of Angry Birds is approaching fast, and we have decided to celebrate by organizing the first official Angry Birds Day worldwide!
On this special occasion, we want to raise our concerns about the alarming levels of avian-porcine aggression worldwide. To our knowledge, at least three trillion piggies have been popped around the globe in 2010, with millions of feathered fowl lost in the process. It is time to stop for a moment and think about the consequences!
Surely there must be a constructive solution to this casual, yet relentless conflict? Surely we can find a civil solution to the disagreement between the Angry Birds and the Green Pigs?
One way to participate in Angry Birds Day everywhere is to get your friends together, show your love towards Angry Birds and hold a rally calling for an end to the cutest conflict in handheld history! Or if you find such an idea insufferable, gather your allies and show your support to the Birds or the Pigs in style!

In just two days, more than 450 people have already scheduled Angry Birds Day meetups in more than 200 locations across the world! In London, 60 people have signed up to have fun in Trafalgar Square!
In NYC, there will be a gathering at Times Square! In Barcelona, Angry Birds fans are planning to take over Playa Catalunya! More people are joining events in Hong Kong, Moscow, Jakarta and other cities around the world every day!
What is the point of Angry Birds Day meetups?
There is only one point: to have fun together!
In one year, Angry Birds has become a global phenomenon. Different versions of the game have been downloaded to smartphones and tablets over 36 million times. People everywhere spend their bus trips, train rides, rainy days or other idle time playing Angry Birds, talking about Angry Birds, or creating fun stuff around Angry Birds.
We thought that it would be a fantastic idea to join up with other Angry Birds fans and have even more fun! The Rovio Team will host an event at Elisa Studio in Helsinki, Finland, where we will webcast interviews and chats with our developers, fans and friends.
We hope that you will also capture your local event in photos and videos, and share them with the rest of the community!
