It was a day before "Bastille Day" we were walking in Champs-Élysées and planes were ready for tomorrow.
Bastille Day is the common name given in English-speaking countries to the French National Day, which is celebrated on 14 July each year. In France, it is formally called La fête nationale and commonly Le quatorze juillet. The French National Day commemorates the Storming of the Bastille on 14 July 1789, an important event 226 years ago in Paris in the French Revolution, which had begun two days earlier, as well as the Fête de la Fédération which celebrated the unity of the French people on 14 July 1790. Celebrations are held throughout France. The oldest and largest regular military parade in Europe is held on the morning of 14 July, on the Champs-Élysées in Paris in front of the President of the Republic, along with other French officials and foreign guests.
