Where do picnics come from?
Picnic comes from the French word, ‘picque-nique’ which denotes a similar meaning to what a picnic means now! Picque-nique means a gathering where people bring food and people all pick at it and share! Picnics supposedly started with medieval hunting feasts where people would enjoy foods such as meats and pastry. By the 19th century, the meaning of picnic had slightly changed. Instead of meaning that everyone who attends brings a contribution, it transformed more into eating outside. Picnics are written to have started in Europe but are now enjoyed all over the world and people are getting more and more creative with picnic recipes.
