What is Bastille Day?
Bastille Day is one of the most important days in the French calendar. The 14th of July has been celebrated in France since 1880. But the story starts, of course, with the Bastille and its storming by the angry citizens in 1789, a major event of the French Revolution, as well as the Fete de la Federation that celebrated the unity of the French people. The Bastille has long since lost its primary role of being a prison. In fact, when it was stormed, there were only supposedly, 7 prisoners in total. It was the symbol of the Bastille and what it represented that pushed the people to the brink. It was the day that the French people stood up for themselves. The people took matters into their own hands and became masters of their own destiny.
