The word picnic is believed to have originated from the French word - pique-nique. Soon, picnics became a popular activity throughout the world. In the year 2009, the largest picnic was recorded in the Guinness Book of World Records. The picnic took place in Lisbon, Portugal with more than 20,000 people.
