Bastille Day

Bastille Day

In English we call the French National Day, Bastille Day – the anniversary of Storming of the Bastille. Celebrated today, July 14th.

Since I wrote something about American Independence Day I thought I may as well write about Bastille Day. They are both countries’ national days.

Celebrating mobs attacking the the Bastille seems a rather strange thing to celebrate. But then, the French Revolution is one of those historical events I have many questions about.
