Eat Outside Day 2024: History, Celebration, Wishes, Messages, Quotes

August 31, there is an interesting day called Eat Outside Day.  The day is created to inspire us to eat something in the fresh air with a touch of pure nature. This is not a new idea. Our ancient forefathers grew up in nature and they cooked and ate there. Everything was natural. But we are growing up in a realistic world. Where we have many luxurious items to enjoy our life, yet we are not happy.

Actually, we have an inner attraction to open fresh air which we have got from our ancestors who lived in a jungle that was surrounded by nature. Eating in fresh and open-air gives a wonderful feeling.  So let’s go to know how we may celebrate this exceptional day.

History Of Eat Outside Day

There is a long history of eating outside. Ancient people are totally dependent on hunting. Even medieval period hunting was a big source of meat.  So eating outside was a common thing. In the time of the French Revolution in 1789, the former Royal Parks were opened to the public, and people used them for socializing, bringing food to share, and enjoying it together. At a similar time, pleasure gardens were created in the U.S. These were private spaces where a family could walk, play any outdoor games, and enjoy a meal. Eating at a park or garden becomes very popular in our modern age.

The teddy bears didn’t picnic at first

The children’s song, ‘The Teddy Bear’s Picnic’ was originally called ‘The Teddy Bear’s Two-Step’ when it was composed in 1907, but changed when the lyrics were added later, in 1930.

One of the earliest accounts of picnicking comes from the stories of Robin Hood, in which Robin and his band of Merry Men would eat bread, cheese, and beer in the forest.

They’re important in Australian literature

Considered by critics to be one of Australia’s best novels, “Picnic at Hanging Rock” centers around the unresolved mystery of a missing girl — author Joan Lindsay’s original draft resolved the mystery with the suggestion of a time warp, but that chapter was removed before publication.

Originally, picnics took place inside, with the distinction from a dinner party being that all guests brought a dish for everyone to share.
