Today is Teddy Bear Day!

Who doesn't love a nice, soft, snuggly teddy bear? So, I suppose a day to "celebrate" teddy bears makes sense . . . maybe! At any rate, whether it makes sense or not, today is Teddy Bear Day!

On the website where I found out about this day, it said, "Today is Teddy Bear Day. A Teddy Bear is a special friend to children all over the world. He's cuddly. He makes you feel secure in an otherwise insecure world. He's lovable. Your Teddy Bear is both a companion and a comforter. And, he's not afraid of the dark. He'll keep you safe. Spend the day and night with your teddy bear . Cuddle up to him. Talk to him. And, do all of your favorite things together. Parents and adults: No child should grow up without a teddy bear. If you know of any kid without one, use this day to buy a teddy bear for them. As we become adults, some find it difficult to give up our teddy bears. We feel there is no reason to give him up. Some adults have their teddy bears around all their lives. Its perfectly normal....and okay. Have a happy Teddy Bear Day!"

Teddy Bears are special friends to children around the world . . . my Caleb loves stuffed bears, but his favorite stuffed toy is his Floppy Bunny Rabbit Puppet! Josiah liked a Grizzly Bear Puppet I have - we made up "George the Bear" stories for this bear - great times and great memories!

Teddy Bears are not afraid of the dark and are cuddly "friends" to snuggle with! I agree children should not grow up without a teddy bear! (See my next post with a free pattern for crocheting an adorable bear you could make and give to children!)

So, do your grandchildren love teddy bears or do they have a different cuddly, stuffed friend?
