Happy Teddy Bear Picnic Day! What a fun, silly, unofficial holiday that is largely celebrated in Canada, the United States, Australia, and some parts of Europe each year on July 10th.
How perfect does it sound to make a picnic, grab your favorite Teddy Bear and order up some Boo-Shaw Bakery cookies to share 🍪 🍪 🍪! Teddy Bears and Cookies, what can be more perfect?
This day was created based on the popular song of the same name, “The Teddy Bears’ Picnic”. The song is a classic one, written to the tune of a song composed in 1907 by American John W. Bratton. The lyrics were added later, in 1930, by Jimmy Kennedy, a British songwriter. This holiday remained popular since it helped people enjoy the simple and small pleasures of a picnic with these stuffed animals.
