#OnThisDay, 25 March 1969, John & Yoko began their first Bed-In for Peace at the Amsterdam Hilton.
"We sent out a card: 'Come to John and Yoko's honeymoon: a bed-in, Amsterdam Hotel.' You should have seen the faces on the reporters and the cameramen fighting their way through the door! Because whatever it is, is in people's minds - their minds were full of what they thought was going to happen. They fought their way in, and their faces dropped. There were we like two angels in bed, with flowers all around us, and peace and love on our heads. We were fully clothed; the bed was just an accessory. We were wearing pyjamas, but they don't look much different from day clothes – nothing showing."
For the week of their honeymoon in the Presidential Suite of the Amsterdam Hilton, John & Yoko invited the world's press to talk with them between 9am and 9pm everyday to promote world peace.
