Who says that being on a picnic means you can certainly do whatever you desire? Well, if it were that way, then it will be too scary to go on a picnic because anything will be able to happen because there are generally no rules to follow. Individuals will just walk up to your picnic spot and hijack your basket which will be extremely dangerous, too. I shudder to think what could happen. So before anything awful happens to your supposedly calming and stress-free picnic, there are numerous picnic etiquettes that you must abide by in order to coexist with other picnic goers and with your surroundings also.
There are picnic groves that have several picnic tables that strangers will be able to share. Please don’t come up to somebody else’s picnic and feel too comfy. You do not know what these people are there for and they might not like it if anyone gatecrashes to their picnic.
Another well-known thing that happens in a really fun picnic with much food on the table is the Food fight. It is very common in college cafeterias however it may possibly happen in picnics too since they tend to be by themselves. Don’t start, encourage or get associated in a food fight. Aside from all the trash that you will be leaving behind, you will probably be attracting a lot of bugs such as ants and bees that can harm you after they smell food on you.
Yet another thing to watch is your music volume. Don’t play your stereo too loud. You will not only disturb other picnic goers, but you might irritate the animals around you. You don’t want a bear or other untamed creatures to come over to your picnic just due to the fact they heard your loud music.
Speaking of bears, don’t feed the animals, especially bears. They could be cute and cuddly, but then again you never know when they might suddenly turn wild. For those who bring their dogs along on a picnic, don’t let your dogs out without a leash because they might harm or ruin other people’s picnic and you will be held responsible for it.
Also, make sure you clean up your dog’s droppings and make sure to dispose it properly. That goes for all your trash as well. Keep all your trash in a bag that you can bring along with you to avoid a pile up of trash in the picnic site.
And on your way home, don’t drink alcoholic beverages knowing that you will be driving everyone home. Accidents happen anytime and just about everywhere so refrain from drinking alcohol in a picnic. There tend to be much of things that you need to avoid in order to make your picnic worry and hassle free. The list goes on and on. Various strokes for various folks. In the end, the success of your picnic will all depend on how well you behave like a responsible picnic-goer.
Finally, there are several things you can do without limiting yourself from doing. Have fun, fun and more fun! Do bring a good camera to capture your precious moments, bring lots of healthy and good food for everyone to enjoy and have some more fun under the sun.
