Bastille Day on 14th July is the National Holiday of France. This day commemorates the storming of the Bastille in 1789. The Bastille was a fortress prison in Paris and there were only seven inmates during the storming. The Prison was destroyed within five months and there is now a monument on the site. The French now rejoice in all things representing France celebrating “liberty, equality, and fraternity.” A parade takes place in Paris every year which is a great opportunity to go along and show support waving a France Held Hand Flag. There are also many other public events as well as family picnics, dinners and get-togethers.
