Is the Picnic a British Invention?

27 July 2023
A bit of research into the Picnic took me to Fortnam and Masons website where there is some entertaining history ...which will leave you very hungry!
The picnic is not a British invention, and the word itself remains a bit of a mystery. It may derive from the French verb piquer ('to peck' or 'to pick') allied to the noun nique ('a small amount'), but no-one can be sure sure.,one%20can%20be%20sure%20sure.
However - no picnic is complete without a Tunnocks Caramel Wafer and your favourite sandwich or treat wrapped up in one of Re-Wrap-It's Wrappers!
