If it’s too hot outside, prepare these baskets for an indoor session

International Picnic Day is celebrated on June 18 to encourage people to go out and have a good day with their friends and family. Previously, groups would go on picnics to get away from their mundane life and enjoy delicious food and good company.

Over the past two years, it has been difficult to engage in such activities due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Those who cannot go out due to weather conditions such as rain or heat can have an indoor picnic on International Picnic Day.

History of International Picnic Day

The origins of International Picnic Day are unclear. However, it is thought that the word “picnic” is probably closely associated with French picnic. These informal outdoor activities are thought to have gained popularity in France after the French Revolution in the 1800s. In England, outdoor picnics became popular in the 20th century.

International Picnic Day gives everyone the opportunity to get together with friends and relatives and enjoy a day outdoors. This is an opportunity to strengthen family ties and friendships while enjoying good food in the heart of nature.

According to the Guinness Book of World Records, the world’s largest picnic took place in Portugal on June 20, 2009. About 22,232 people gathered at Parque da Bela Vista in Lisbon, Portugal. People from across the country arrived at the scene to participate in the picnic.

In the Australian Northern Territory, Picnic Day is observed on the first Monday in August each year. The day serves as an extra rest day for the workers as people get a day off on this occasion. Schools and colleges also remain closed.
