It’s that time of the year again. On July 14th, it’s French National Day aka Bastille Day. The holiday celebrates the storming of the Bastille fortress on July 14th, 1789. In other words, it’s an amazing time to go out, drink, and celebrate being French! Visit AllNY for some ideas on what to do this year.
In the meantime, this Joe Dassin song should be on heavy rotation on your iPod this week. It’s about the iconic avenue called Champs-Élysées in Paris, where the largest and oldest military parade takes place annually to celebrate this glorious day. Careful, hearing this song can make you hum with a happy skip in your step all day.
