A little bit of history of “14 Juillet” aka Bastille Day
Bastille Day is the common name given in English-speaking countries to the national day of France. Also the French celebrate Bastille Day on 14 July each year. In French, it is formally called Fête nationale (pronounce; “National Celebration”) and commonly and legally le 14 juillet (French pronunciation; “the 14th of July”).
In brief, the French National Day is the anniversary of Storming of the Bastille on 14 July 1789, a turning point of the French Revolution. As the French celebrate their National Day throughout the country, France holds the oldest and largest regular military parade in Europe on 14 July on the Champs-Élysées in Paris in front of the President of the Republic, along with other French officials and foreign guests.
Today Bastille Day is a generic name for an event which surpasses the souvenir of an historical event. Also Bastille Day resonates for anyone who loves liberty across the world. Meanwhile The French American Academy is an universal concept of multilingualism and bilingualism. Indeed we believe in culture and education as solid foundation for an adult life . In brief we are proud to celebrate Bastille Day in Jersey City.
