  2. Italy’s favourite picnic day is Easter Monday. It is called “Angel’s Monday” or Pasquetta (“Little Easter”).
  3. After an ant has visited your picinc, it lays down a scent as it returns to the nest for the other ants to follow!
  4. In the year 2000, a 600-mile-long picnic took place in France to celebrate the first Bastille Day of the new millennium.
  5. The first table designed specifically for picnics (in a style similar to what we know today) appeared in the late 1800s.
