Teddy Bear Day 2022

September 9, 2022 is Teddy Bear Day! And in honor of this special day, we wanted to share with you some fun facts about teddy bears and the celebration that surrounds it.

First of all, Teddy Bear Day is not a religious holiday – it’s simply a day to celebrate all things teddy bear-related. In fact, the date of September 9 was chosen because that’s the birthday of Theodore Roosevelt, who is widely considered to be the father of the modern teddy bear.

And while we’re on the topic of origins, it’s also worth noting that the first teddy bears weren’t actually made out of soft plush toy material like we know them today. In fact, the very first teddy bears were actually made out of old rags and pieces of cloth – and they weren’t very popular at first! But thanks to the dedication and hard work of many talented people over the years, Teddy Bear Day is now one of the biggest holidays in the world!

What is Teddy Bear Day?

Teddy Bear Day is a day to celebrate teddy bears, and to remember the importance of giving back to children.

This day was created by The Salvation Army in response to the Great Depression, when children did not have enough toys to play with. In order to help children in need, The Salvation Army created Teddy Bear Day as a way to collect donations of new, unused, or gently-used teddy bears.

The main goal of Teddy Bear Day is to encourage people to give back to children. By donating new, unused, or gently-used teddy bears, everyone can make a difference in the lives of children. This day also reminds us of the importance of generosity and helping others.
