Though in India, apart from Valentine’s Day celebrating all these other days is a trend that is just catching on, especially among youngsters and the college going crowd. Teddy Day appearing four days before the Valentine’s Day is one such celebration.
The Teddy Bear History
Like every new celebration has a story, so does Teddy Day. Not many people know, but the term Teddy Bear was coined up after the erstwhile President of the United States, Theodore Roosevelt. The story goes that Theodore Roosevelt was on a hunting trip. A black bear was hunted down by his comrades and President Roosevelt was asked to shoot it. Roosevelt refused to shoot the bear. The incident made waves in the newspapers. Many cartoons depicting the incident with the bear became popular, and eventually, the bear in the cartoons got cuter and smaller.
The owners of the Ideal Novelty and toy company Morris Michtom and his wife created the first bear soft toys that were inspired by the incident and the subsequent cartoons. “Teddy”, as Roosevelt was fondly called, was a name that gave the couple decided to use. They sent a toy bear to Roosevelt, seeking his permission, and thus the cuddly toy got its name “Teddy’s Bear”. Over time, innovations in material use and cuter, cuddly features morphed into what the world sees as Teddy Bears.
The Teddy Bear soon became a popular gifting item and started representing a gift for expressing liking, as a memoir for someone special one likes, and more recently as a token of one’s love.
