NA­TIONAL CEL­E­BRA­TION

Living France - - What's New -

On 14 July France cel­e­brates the be­gin­ning of its rev­o­lu­tion with Le Qu­a­torze fes­tiv­i­ties (bet­ter known to us An­glo­phones as Bastille Day). The coun­try cel­e­brates its na­tional day in spec­tac­u­lar style with fire­work dis­plays, fire­fight­ers’ balls and mil­i­tary pa­rades that take place up and down the coun­try. It’s also a wel­come ex­cuse for an­other day off and many peo­ple mark the day in a sim­ple style, with a bar­beque, pic­nic or a day on the beach with fam­ily and friends. Not in France for the cel­e­bra­tions? Why not don your best Bre­ton stripes, open a bot­tle of red and raise a glass to lib­erté, égal­ité, fra­ter­nité! Santé!
