Life’s a/no Picnic?

August 18, 2019
The word “picnic” comes from the French.  After the French Revolution royal parks became open to the public for the first time.  So all kinds of people would gather for “pique-nique” a pitch-in meal in the park.  Some of these gatherings would be very simple with just a few people while others would include lots of people with elaborate food and wine.
