It's the fourth day of Valentine Week: Teddy Day! On this day, people gift each other stuffed teddy bears as a symbol of their love and affection for each other. Teddy Day is celebrated every year on February 10. It is the day which falls before Promise Day and right after Chocolate Day. Teddy bears are today huge popular as stuffed animals - but the history behind this toy is a very interesting one. Teddy bears get their name from former US President Theodore 'Teddy' Roosevelt, who, in 1902, refused to shoot a tied-up black bear. The news of the US President refusing to shoot a bear spread quickly and a political cartoonist illustrated it. When Morris Mitchom and his wife Rose saw the cartoon, they decided to create a stuffed toy bear, commemorating the President. Morris Mitchom called it - Teddy's Bear.
