International Picnic Day is celebrated on June 18 annually. A picnic is a fun activity of packing delicious food and enjoying it outdoors in the fresh air. This year, thanks to the pandemic-induced lockdowns, picnics aren’t a feasible option. However, don’t let that dampen your spirits. Just because you cannot go out to picnic, doesn’t mean you miss out on the experience. You can have a picnic right inside your home — just unfurl a mat and set up your cutlery and other fun picnic paraphernalia, play some music and enjoy the vibe.
