"On September 9th, National Teddy Bear Day honors the history of one of childhood’s favorite toys. We have all had a special cuddly teddy as a child. Some of us still have our teddy bear from our childhood. Whether or not you still have your childhood teddy, the day is a perfect time to celebrate your childhood friend!

In 1902, American President Theodore Roosevelt refused to shoot a bear cub while hunting in Mississippi. This incident made national news. Clifford Berryman published a cartoon of the event in the Washington Post on November 16th, 1902. The caricature became an instant classic.


This cartoon by Clifford Berryman’s published in a 1902 Washington Post inspired the Teddy bear.

The Berryman cartoon of Teddy Roosevelt and the cub inspired New York store owner Morris Michtom to create a new toy. Morris Michtom wrote President Roosevelt to ask permission to name the new toy a “Teddy Bear.” "

It's also National **** Schnitzel Day AN Austrian dish made with veal, it is most often served with a lettuce salad, a cucumber salad or potato salad. Over the years, some have made it with pork. Being a traditionalist, I prefer the vela. It's a relatively rare dish in the states, but mighty tasty if you can find it.

I had to edit this. I guess the word w.einer isn't acceptable.
