Today is July 14th! Aka Bastille Day aka “la Fête Nationale” of my home and beloved country. Parties in every fire stations throughout the country, fireworks, bank holiday, flags and the -rare?- day when we French people finally come together and party as one.
I am in Sweden right now, so no crazy Fire Station Ball for me this year (if you are ever in France on July 13th and 14th RUN to one of these: Fire Stations open up to everyone and you party with firemen and firewomen until dawn. Do I need to say more?)
BUT my fellow friends of the Happy Crew celebrated Frankrike by sporting some serious BLEU BLANC ROUGE (blue white red) outfits today !!
Vive la France! Et vive la Suède!
