There are a bunch of bear-related celebration days throughout the year. Lets review of few of them, beginning with the upcoming Have a Party with Your Bear Day on November 16th. It's not clear whether the creators of this day meant a stuffed teddy bear, a toy bear, someone dressed in a bear suit, or a real bear! If you happen upon a real bear, use caution. :)
Perhaps it would be best to just READ about a real bear, such as in this interesting story about the magnificent Grizzly Bear by Sylvestermouse, after you finish the party with your favorite stuffed bear.
The Teddy Bear Picnic
|The Teddy Bears' Picnic (Classic Board Books)|
This 'bear-party' day is not the same as the Teddy Bear Picnic Day, celebrated on July 10th. Since this day occurs in the summertime, it's the perfect time to grab your favorite stuffed teddy bear, pack a picnic lunch, and enjoy some outdoor fun with your teddy bears, family and friends. Everyone could bring their favorite teddy bear!
Special 'Bear' DaysTeddy bears are very important to children (young and old) and they deserve recognition. There are a variety of special days throughout the year set aside to celebrate these cuddly bears, plus bear-related days for fictional bears and real bears.

Many teddy bears have become famous, including Paddington Bear, Rupert Bear, Pudsey Bear, Smokey Bear and, the most famous and my favorite, Winnie the Pooh (who has his own special day on January 18).
Favorite Teddy Bear
|Baby Teddy Bears|
My son's first teddy bear was forever his favorite stuffed animal. He acquired him as an infant and they were 'inseparable' all through his early years. He named him simply "Teddy". He looked a bit like this one shown above.
Party Time with your Bear
Any of these bears ~ or your own favorite teddy bear ~ would enjoy a party on Teddy Bear Party Day every November 16th.
