People have been eating their meals outside in the beauty of nature for centuries. In fact, our modern-day idea of a picnic evolved from Medieval hunting feasts and Victorian garden parties. These were usually quite sophisticated affairs that involved multiple courses and elaborate preparations.
During the early 19th century, a group of wealthy London citizens formed "The Picnic Society" to promote picnics as social gatherings. These picnics were potlucks, and each participant also had to provide a share of the entertainment. The society members drank from crystal goblets and listened to a live string quartet while eating their meal! Today, picnics are usually casual meals enjoyed on a comfortable picnic blanket.
To celebrate National Picnic Day, take your meal outdoors and enjoy a picnic with your friends and family!
