This Tuesday the French celebrated their National Holiday. But what are we celebrating?
On July 14, 1789 the bastille was taken by the revolutionaries and time was up for the French monarchy. No need to talk about the fate of the representatives of this monarchy - today July 14 is celebrated with great pomp; parades, plane shows, fireworks and ballroom dancing. In recent years, a solemn note is added to celebration with the commemoration of the victims of the Nice attack on July 14, 2016. This year, the Elysée Palace also paid tribute to the medical staff, essential and present during the ordeal we just crossed. This is a day to spend with your family, go to the restaurant, or maybe just relax on the beach or in a park. No need to explain to the French why we celebrate July 14, but we can add some very useful information: it is also the birthday of the Crown Princess of Sweden, Victoria Bernadotte, of French descent herself!
