We're going on a bear hunt! People across the country are popping bears in their windows. But what's the story behind the fuzzy faces? Tell us about your bear - what's their name, where did you get it, how far have they travelled? Post a photo and tell us their story! You can also email email@example.com if you've seen any bears in Christchurch you think we should cover. (Please mark any posts you don't want to see published NFP).
