Together, Patti and I picked out today’s topic. We agreed on ..

Not bad at all!

International Picnic Day is on June 18, and we’re using our time to celebrate — with a picnic! Picnics have been a staple of most cultures for years and, believe it or not, their popularity can be traced directly to the French Revolution. The French were the first to popularize picnicking, which they referred to as ‘pique-niques.’

The definitions of a picnic might be different, but a picnic is a great way to bring people together for an enjoyable day.

For many across the world, picnics are a relaxing change of pace from their daily lives.

Although the French are credited with the creation of modern picnics, globalization and individual cultures are responsible for their grand popularity. In 2018, 55% of young Americans said having a picnic was their favorite warm-weather activity.

And as the concept of picnics has spread, a myriad of different traditions have arisen in a plethora of different places. There are very few, if any, cultures around the world that do not engage in picnicking in their own way.

Picnics are a wonderful way to get outside and enjoy what your city has to offer you. And after a hike or walk, you’ll be antsy for a nice break and a fun meal together.

Well just look at who Patti photographed contemplating its own picnic out in front of our Condo the other day!

Tom and Ginny were out the other day and look who stopped by to see IF it could get a picnic hand out!

    Picnics remind me of my childhood. Both my parents came from large families so our picnics were a happy get-together with aunts, uncles, and lots of cousins.
