today is the french national holiday, bastille day
for a little history lesson:
bastille day commemorates the storming of bastille which took play july 14, 1789 and marked the beginning of the french revolution.
so go out and enjoy a macaroon, a croissant or baguette; watch your favourite french film, listen to your favorite french tune... or enjoy a bottle of champagne
le jour heureux de bastille
