Having Fun

Today's trivia continues yesterday's "picnic" theme. Picnics are social events involving food, families, friends and fun. They take place at parks, beaches, festivals, backyards, tailgates and many other places. The word "picnic" was first introduced in English in 1748. The 19th century brought the "Picnic Society" a wealthy group of Londoners promoting socal affairs. Each attendee was expected to bring a dish. The middle of the century was when picnics were associated with the outside. Picnics can range from casual, cozy or grand affairs. The food can be served on paper plates or china. Whatever is chosen the main ingred- ient to a picnic is FUN! Have a picnic today and have FUN! ~Keep on Dreaming~
