The French word “pique-nique,” which denotes a social occasion where each guest provides a share of the food, is where the English word “picnic” originates.
On International Picnic Day, we may reconnect with nature and spend time with our loved ones outside. This day not only gives us a fantastic opportunity to unwind but also plenty of time to reestablish contact with our social network. Additionally, Picnic Day offers us an opportunity to escape the busyness of our regular lives. Every year on June 18, International Picnic Day is observed to recognise the value of picnics and the joy they bring.
The French word “pique-nique,” which denotes a social occasion where each guest provides a share of the food, is where the English word “picnic” originates. The origin of picnic day is unknown. Picnics, however, are thought to have started off as a casual outdoor dinner during the French Revolution. The largest picnic, according to the Guinness Book of World Records, took place in Portugal. The event was attended by about 20,000 people.
A picnic used to be more than simply a way to relax or enjoy a lovely outdoor meal; it occasionally served as a meeting place for people who shared the same political interests. This was demonstrated by the Pan-European Picnic of 1989, which was held along the border between Austria and Hungary.
While participating in a local Picnic Day event is an option, going on a short outing with friends or family is also a wonderful way to spend this day. In either case, picnics are about eating lunch outdoors with your loved ones while taking in the scenery.
A nice food basket to bring along and enjoy on a picnic can include sandwiches, fruits, and some sides like salads, potato chips, or grilled vegetables.
In order to add an extra piece of freshness due to the current high temperatures, a summer cooler should also be included on the menu.
