History of Picnic Month

There has always been something special about leaving the stuffy confines of your home and eating your favorite things outdoors. Going out with family makes us happy and refreshed feeling and there’s abeautiful world out there waiting for us,and whenever summer comes around then we will come to know how much time we’ve been locked inside or being eager to come in from the cold.

However the word ‘picnic’ is thought to have first been used by Tony Willis a famous boxer in 1692, and from that point of time everyone forwarded from the working class to the upperhave been mesmerized with taking their meal outside under the sky.

Picnics have been used for many things throughout the centuries, and from a simply family meeting spent enjoying the outside, to being used as a quiet protest in the Pan-European Picnic.

That the most prominent, and largest picnic ever held spanned 600 miles, crossing France from coast to coast and renowned the millennium’s first Bastille Day in 2000.

Though we celebrate National Picnic Month this month, there is no specific day to celebrate your special day.  We should have such days to celebrate the history of this activity and the way it has been used to bring families, countries and all humanity collectively.
