Did anyone celebrate today, July 14 - Bastille Day?

Asked by Frteach (123points) July 14th, 2010

As you know, July 14th is the “Independence Day” for French men and women everywhere. Is there anyone here that celebrates the day? What do you do? eat? sing? have fireworks? Is your celebration anything like the American 4th of July?

Aha! Maybe the French guys here in Boston’s Little Italy were behind today’s wild fireworks all around the neighborhood..

I thought about it. An important day in history. Yet, I did nothing in particular.
