The French National Holiday! July 14th
Bastille Day!

Today commemorates the storming of the Bastille in Paris which happened on July 14th in 1789.
It was the start of the French Revolution, the overthrow of the monarchy and the beginning of a new French Republic.

It is the French Independence day celebration and they do it up big...just like our 4th of July.
It is a public holiday in France with military and civilian parades, spectacular fireworks, music,
dances, lots of french food & wine, the whole works.
So, this calls for a French -themed day, go out and party in the bleu, blanc & rouge, (our nations colors too).

Enjoy a french pastry, share a meal with a friend (we are going to a Bastille party tonight to celebrate),
make friends with the Gargoyles in your life, french kiss your honey, french kiss a Gargoyle....

Whatever you do it's a good day to be alive and celebrate along, Vive la France!
