What is Bastille Day?

Bastille Day

The National Day of France falls annually on the 14th of July. It celebrates two separate occasions that fall on the same day: The Storming of Bastille in 1789 – a major climacteric of the French Revolution; and the Fête de la Fédération, which emblazons the unity of the French people in 1790.

Formally, the National Day of France is called la Fête Nationale in France, whilst commonly, it is cleped le 14 juillet –the 14th of July– amongst the French. In English-speaking countries, however, it is denominated Bastille Day. The day is usually celebrated throughout France, where the largest and oldest military parade in Europe can be seen marching down the Champs-Élysées in Paris before French officials and foreign visitants.
