Today marks the annual celebration of National Teddy Bear Day. This cuddly children’s toy is the namesake of our annual winter children’s event – The Teddy Bear Tea. This annual event shares the message of the birth of Jesus Christ to our younger audience—children age 5 and older. Along with story-telling to inspire the children with the story of Christ’s birth and the true meaning of Christmas, children and their parents also get to enjoy live-music, holiday treats and every child receives a special commemorative teddy bear.

The 2013 Teddy Bear Tea will take place on Saturday, December 7. With just 89 days until the Teddy Bear Tea (106 until Christmas!), you may want to reserve your space early for this fun-filled, children’s event – it has sold out the past 4 years.

Looking for a way to share the joy and hope of Christ with other children? Consider adding a small teddy bear to your Operation Christmas Child shoebox.
