Teddy Bears’ Picnic Day

Teddy Bears’ Picnic Day

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. Since the song became so popular, the day has evolved and is now celebrated by families in countries all over the world, enjoying the simple pleasure of a picnic with their favourite stuffed beings.
