IT'S TEDDY BEAR PICNIC DAY

In the early 20th century, John Walter Bratton composed an instrumental song entitled “The Teddy Bears’ Picnic.” In the late 1980s, collectible items dealer Royal Selangor decided to turn that into a national holiday. He also had the idea to conveniently release toy boxes and collectible items in conjunction with the event. Regardless of profitable motivations, the day became a national holiday and remains popular throughout Europe, as far away as Australia, and among many reputable stuffed bear circles.
