Today is National Picnic Day!

People have been eating their meals outside in the beauty of nature for centuries. In fact, our modern-day idea of a picnic evolved from Medieval hunting feasts and Victorian garden parties. These were usually quite sophisticated affairs, which involved multiple courses and elaborate preparations. During the early 19th century a group of wealthy London citizens formed “The Picnic Society” to promote picnics as social gatherings. These picnics were potlucks, and each participant also had to provide a share of the entertainment. The society members drank from crystal goblets and listened to a live string quartet while eating their meal! Today, picnics are usually casual meals enjoyed on a comfortable picnic blanket.

Today in History: Rome founded 753 B.C.

Today in History: Rome founded 753 B.C.

The beginnings of the history of Rome are obscure. Humans have lived in the area known as Rome for at least the last 6,000 years. According to legend, on April 21, 753 B.C., twin brothers Romulus and Remus found Rome on the site where they were suckled by a she-wolf as orphaned infants. It is said that Romulus killed his twin brother, Remus, and named the city after himself. However, this myth supposedly originated sometime during the fourth century and it is thus not really clear where the name Rome originally comes from. Was it really 21 April 753 BC?

Today in History: Seville World’s Fair opens in 1992

The Universal Exposition of Seville (Expo ’92) took place from April 20 to October 12, 1992, on Cartuja Island in Seville, Spain. The theme for the Expo was “The Age of Discovery” and over 100 countries were represented. Almost 42 million people visited the fair. Expo’92 Seville was widely known for its massive site, held at the Isla de la Cartuja, reputed site of reference for Columbus for his voyage to the New World, and required at least several days to visit most of the Pavilions. It was also known for its numerous spectacular gates and bridges, and the diversity of transport within the Expo site from bus to ferry boat, to cable car and monorail. It also gave an impressive architectural tour of the world, with many countries vying for the position of the most inventive or creative Pavilion structure – outstanding amongst these was the Pavilion of Japan – the world’s largest wooden structure, the Pavilion of Morocco, a re-creation of a Moroccan Palace-Mansion, and the modernistic cube and sphere of the flagship Spanish Pavilion, to name a few.
