What is this Holiday for?
National Picnic month is when we celebrate the love of being outside enjoying each others company by having a nice relaxing picnic. It's a time to celebrate the open air, nature all it has to offer.

Definition of Picnic
In contemporary usage, picnic can be defined simply as a pleasure excursion at which a meal is eaten outdoors, ideally taking place in a beautiful landscape. Picnics are often family-oriented but can also be an intimate occasion between two people, or a large get-together, company picnics and church picnics.

On romantic and family picnics a picnic basket and a blanket are usually brought along. Outdoor games or some other form of entertainment are common at large picnics.

Formerly, picnic meant a potluck, an entertainment at which each person contributed some dish to a common table for all to share.
___________________________________________________________

Picnics are extremely popular all throughout the spring summer and fall but during the month of July you see picnics everywhere and I do mean everywhere!  One of the reasons why picnics are so popular in July is because a large number of families take their vacations in July and spend much of their time outdoors enjoying the warm weather and having picnics out of a basket or having outside picnics while grilling BBQ on the grill. Oh yeah! Love that BBQ!

Picnics are extremely popular with couples in love.
There's nothing like a nice quiet blanket for two layed out somewhere in a nice shady park.  Couples can share fresh fruit and wine while relaxing on a traditional red checkered picnic blanket.
