11 Reasons We Should All Live Like Winnie The Pooh

When the news broke that revealed Canada’s favourite stuffed bear Winnie the Pooh is actually a girl , we started to question everything we ever knew and loved about him, er, her.

As it turns out, Winnie was based on a real-life black bear, who was in fact, a girl. She belonged to a military man during World War I. Eventually, Winnie ended up in a London zoo. That’s where Christopher Robin saw her. He decided to name his own bear, who was a boy, Winnie as well. A.A. Milne named the character of books after his son’s stuffed toy, and the rest was history.

But regardless of Pooh’s—the real-life or stuffed bear’s—assigned or assumed gender, it doesn’t change the fact that Pooh just gets us. (S)he remains the most relevant fictional bear to date, despite being over 100 years old. Here are 11 reasons we should all live our lives a little more like Pooh Bear.
