Whether you enjoy breakfast from your porch while watching the sun rise, head to the park for a picnic lunch, gather your friends and family for outdoor grilling, or opt for the outdoor patio at your favorite restaurant, find a way to eat outside today.

Teddy Bear Picnic Day

In 1902, President Theodore Roosevelt refused to shoot a small bear while on a hunting trip. The Washington Post created a cartoon in the paper about the incident, and toy store owners Morris and Rose Michtom decided to capitalize on the event. They created a stuffed bear and asked permission from the President to call the animal a Teddy Bear, and just like that an iconic toy was born.

July 10 is a day to celebrate our Teddy Bears and the fond memories they invoke by having a picnic with our furry friends. So, gather up your old collection, throw a blanket on the ground, and enjoy a good old-fashioned picnic with your Teddy Bears. The good news is you don’t even have to pack extra food!

It was raining today, but we still had a Teddy Bear Picnic in the office while listening to the classic song.
