Who doesn’t fancy a picnic out with friends and family? Well, if you do know someone, let them know International Picnic Day exists and they need to celebrate it!
The origins of the day are unconfirmed but what we know is International Picnic Day is celebrated annually on the 18th of June. Conveniently held in the middle of June for countries in the northern hemisphere where the weather is perfect for a day out in the sun.
Did you know: Picnic comes from the French word Pique-nique which translates to “to pick” + “small things”. This is why most picnics will consist of bite-size snacks.
Now that International picnic day has gained popularity all over the world, including Australia, we’ve put together some picnic essentials you should pack on for a relaxing winter picnic.
We know it’s the start of Winter and the temperature’s have dropped a few degrees, but that shouldn’t stop you, your family and friends from getting out and soaking in some Vitamin D.
If for any reason you don't want to make a trip out to the park, why not hold a family picnic in your own backyard. Layout the picnic blanket on the lawn and our kids can make use of their backyard play equipment like their trampoline or swing sets.
