It it’s Friday, it must be France …
Bonne Fête de La Bastille! Bonne Fête Nationale! Happy Bastille Day!
Every July 14 the storming of the Bastille in Paris in 1789 is celebrated throughout France and around the world by French ex-pats. A fabulous party is guaranteed!
The holiday celebrates the birth of the French Republic. In most communities, all kinds of festive events are planned for the day – including parades, dances, feasts – and a bang-up finish to the evening with the kind of fantastic fireworks the French love!
