National American Teddy Bear Day – Yet another day for the beloved teddy bear.
National American Teddy Bear Day
Teddy Got His Name From a Former President!
In 1902, American President Theodore Roosevelt refused to shoot a bear cub while hunting in Mississippi.
This incident made national news. Clifford Berryman published a cartoon of the event in the Washington Post on November 16th, 1902. The caricature became an instant classic. It inspired a New York store owner Morris Michtom to create a new toy. Morris Michtom wrote President Roosevelt to ask permission to name the new toy a “Teddy Bear”.
This is a great day to take show off your lovable cuddly stuffed bear. Share with us his or her name.
Not that long ago was Hug a Bear Day!
However, National Teddy Bear is September 9 of each year. Notice one of the days has American Teddy Bear and the other is National Teddy Bear.
Coming soon is Have a Party with your Teddy Bear!

I enjoy listening to nothing but Christian Music. Camping and hiking is something that I enjoy. I guess that is because I am an Eagle Scout. Blogging is something I enjoy doing too. I have been blogging since 2004. However, I have been blogging on Courageous Christian Father since 2012. I am married with 1 daughter and 2 step-sons and a step daughter.
