Plushy Day — Celebrate with Your Favorite Teddy Bear
I’m having lots of fun with these kooky holidays. I hope you are, too. Today is none other than Plushy Day! Yes, that’s right, it’s a day for your favorite, furry, stuffed Teddy bears, or, in my case, my favorite plushy prairie dog and yeast microbe.
There doesn’t seem to be a specific origin for Plushy Day, except that some have speculated it started on a Saturday morning cartoon commercial. I can’t say for sure, but I have my suspicions focused on Christmas. The earliest known plushy was a Teddy bear made by Steiff in 1880, but you know simpler stuffed animals have been around much longer than that.
And plushies aren’t only for children! Heck no! I have several treasured ones, and most every woman I know owns at least one. What’s yours?
So, celebrate Plushy Day with your favorite soft, cuddly whatzit or whozit. And if you don’t have one, your special someone will do nicely.
