teddy bear drawing

Hi everybody, and welcome to a newNIL-Tech tutorial: "Teddy Bear". Have a Party with Your Bear Day is among many bear-related holidays, of which Teddy Bear Picnic Day is the most well-known. The origins and history of this holiday are shrouded in obscurity, although it might be a variation on another bear-related vacation. Aside from the apparent, very little is specified about this holiday. Is the bear in question a teddy bear? A real bear? Should someone wear a bear suit? It can differ - just be careful if the party involves a real bear!)

Here are some interesting facts about teddy Bears:

1. The origins of Hug A Bear Day are uncertain; however, it may be connected with the day in November 1902 when Theodore "Teddy" Roosevelt refused to shoot a bear on a searching trip in Mississippi.

2. The Oxford English Dictionary dates the first use of the term teddy bear to 1906.

3. Bear hugs precede teddy bears by 60 years. The term bear-hug was first recorded in 1846.

4. Teddy bears are not only for kids! 40 % of the teddy bears are bought for adults, and a quarter of us still has our childhood companion.

5. A teddy has been into space! Magellan T Bear boarded Space Shuttle Discovery in 1995 as part of a school project.
