“A picnic is more than eating a meal, it is a pleasurable sate of mind.”
Isn’t it deliciously said, my dear little Friends,
Who is with me for a picnic today?
There is nothing more delightful than a BBQ in a good company, right? Where did you go for a picnic last time?
You know I thought that sometimes we should get out of homes and social networks, we have to switch off our laptops and phones and throw then out of our busy minds. And why not to invite people to share with them your Sunday picnic!
The concept of the picnic dates back more than 250 years when it was considered to be a big event in the social calendar where the guests contributed food to the party. Now picnics get a more personal meaning. We love going out for picnics with our families and friends.
The word ‘picnic’ can be traced back to French roots almost a century after it was first seen in French originating from the word ‘pique-nique.’
The form of the picnic basket has evolved over the years to transform from a simple woven wicker basket to house more complicated features like separate hot and cold compartments, a detachable blanket for picnics and even a wine chiller. Nowadays, our picnic baskets look differently. Surely, we can put there some meat or fish and mostly vegetables with some beverages to refresh under hot summer sun. Yet I hope picnics are not so much for food joy as for the joy of being together and spend time with people whom you care for. Such a hectic lifestyle requires some unity with nature and your loved ones in calmer surroundings. Why not to grab some fishrods as well and impress your family with freshly caught fish that can be grilled with seasonings, hmm, I can nose the smell…yam. There is nothing perfect than a sip of tea while watching the sunset over the river on the blanket! Such moments cannot be bought or found at social networks, they are real not virtual ones! Let’s treasure and enjoy them!
