14 July, a day of unity


After we consider 14 July, we usually consider the storming of the Bastille in 1789, and “Bastille Day” as many international locations name it.

For the French, 14 July is a chance to return collectively and have a good time. This custom was established in 1790 with “Federation Day”, which introduced collectively the French folks in republican banquets to have a good time harmony and restored nationwide unity.

In 1880, 14 July turned our “Nationwide Vacation”, with army parades, fireworks, balls and in style celebrations.

Since then, 14 July has been a chance for the French folks throughout France and the world to satisfy and have a good time the “awakening of freedom”* collectively. [1]
