Bastille Day 2013

La Fete National is a French national holiday, celebrating the storming of the Bastille on July 14, 1789. Here, as in other English speaking countries, it is known as Bastille Day. The most important holiday in France, it marks the first major victory of the French Revolution, the overthrow by the common people of the greatest symbol of the oppressive monarchy—the Bastille prison.
