Have a Party with Your Bear Day is one of several bear-related holidays of which Teddy Bear Picnic Day is the most famous. The origins and history of this holiday are shrouded in obscurity, although may be a variation on another bear-related holiday.

Aside from the obvious, very little is defined about this holiday. Is the bear in question a teddy bear? A real bear? Someone dressed in a bear suit? Its open to interpretation – just use caution if the party involves a real bear!

Some celebration suggestions are to host a party where guests are bring teddy bears – a fun option for children – or to take photos of oneself next to a stuffed museum bear while wearing a party hat. Another fun option might be a trip to a zoo or wildlife park, or learning more about these amazing animals while enjoying a piece of cake.
