Teddy Bear Picnic Day is celebrated on July 10, 2017. Take your Teddy Bear and eat a meal outdoors, ideally taking place in a beautiful landscape such as a park, beside a lake or with an interesting view. Picnics are often family-oriented but can also be an intimate occasion between two people or a large get-together.
The teddy bear is a soft toy in the form of a bear. Developed apparently simultaneously by toymakers Morris Michtom in the US and Richard Steiff in Germany in the early years of the 20th century, and named after President Theodore "T.R." Roosevelt, Jr., the teddy bear became an iconic children's toy, celebrated in story, song and film. (With material from: Wikipedia)
