le 14 juillet

Hôtel de Ville

When I was granted French citizenship a couple of years ago I was given a red, white and blue dossier, welcoming me to France as an official citoyenne.
Tucked into the folder was new French birth certificate, a new French marriage certificate, the Déclaration des Droits de l'Homme et du Citoyen, an excerpt of the Constitution du 4 Octobre 1958, a letter from President Sarkozy and the words to La Marseillaise.

Today is la Fête Nationale, le 14 juillet, and all of France will be celebrating with pique-niques and fireworks.
Me included. Pin It
