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.
