The true nature of this day is unknown. The word ‘picnic’ comes from the French language and is thought to have been invented by the French. Shortly after the end of the French Revolution, the Royal Gardens were opened to the public for the first time. For the French, visiting gardens and feeding with food was the new common pastime.
Purpose of International Picnic Day
The main purpose of International Picnic Day is to encourage people to go abroad, to see places of interest, and to enjoy the company of others.

How to Celebrate This Day
If you have a large backyard garden, you can choose a place in the corner of the yard and put all the stuff in a basket. If you have a small yard, well, just spread a mat on the grass and arrange everything on it. Be prepared with sports ideas that you can play with children or with a family.
There is nothing more fun for a child than sitting on the floor and eating. So if you don’t have a backyard or front yard, you can move your furniture around and make room for a mat on the floor with all the equipment. It’s not as fun as it sounds outside, but at least you’re doing something different.
Even the roof of the house will be a good place for a picnic, you just need some shade and the same things as above. Even if you don’t have children, you can enjoy the time on your own, and read a book instead.
