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 numerous picnic tables that strangers can certainly share. Please don’t come up to somebody else’s picnic and feel too cozy. You by no means know what these folks are there for and they might not like it if a person gatecrashes to their picnic.
Another typical thing that happens in a really fun picnic with a lot of readily available food on the table is the popular Food fight. This is extremely normal in university cafeterias but then it would likely happen in picnics too since they are usually by themselves. Do not start, encourage or get involved in a food competition. Aside from each and every trash that you are going to be leaving behind, you will be attracting bugs like ants and bees which can harm you when they smell food on you.
Another thing to watch is your music volume. Don’t play your stereo too loud. You won’t just disturb other picnic goers, but you might irritate the animals around you. You don’t want a bear or other untamed animals to come over to your picnic just since they heard your loud music.
Talking about bears, do not feed the creatures, specifically bears. They could be cute and cuddly, but then again you do not know whenever they might immediately turn wild. For persons who bring their dogs along on a picnic, don’t let your dogs out without a leash simply because they might harm or destroy other people’s picnic and you will probably be held accountable 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 everywhere so refrain from drinking alcohol in a picnic. There are a lot of things that you need to avoid in order to make your picnic worry and hassle free. The list goes on and on. Different strokes for different folks. In the end, the success of your picnic will all depend on how well you behave as a responsible picnic-goer.
Eventually, there are several things you can do without limiting yourself from enjoying. Have fun, fun and more fun! Do bring a good camera to capture your precious moments, provide loads of healthy and great food for everyone to enjoy and have some more fun under the sun.
