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”.
However, National Teddy Bear is September 9 of each year and National American Teddy Bear Day is November 14 of each year. Notice one of the days has American Teddy Bear and the other is just Teddy Bear.
