Happy Bastille Day!

Hello, blog readers!
Today marks the anniversary of the storming of the Bastille prison by an impoverished population that wasn't too keen on the bit where Versailles was eating off of gold plates and they had no bread.
Today in Paris there is a parade down the Champs-Élysées, fireworks at the Eiffel Tower, and firemen's balls all over the city (that's the part I'm excited about).  It's a little sad, since my father won't be back in Paris until tomorrow, but I'm quite excited!
Do you guys celebrate Bastille Day?
