Today is the 14th of July, Bastille Day.
Time to grab a summer sweetheart with which to Storm the Bastille.
Bastille Day is a French national holiday called “Fête Nationale” (“National Holiday”) in official parlance, or more commonly “quatorze juillet” (“14th of July”).
Many dancing parties with fireworks are organized (“bals du 14 juillet”) and it is customary that firefighters organize them (“bals des pompiers”).
Those celebrations begin during the long evening sunset on the summer night of July 13th and last through the end of July 14th, or officially until 12:01 AM July 15th.
The two long summer evenings play an integral part in the celebration. Multiple nap-times spent privately with your summer sweetheart are considered as de rigueur as attending the public outdoor celebrations and various dances.
Think about it.
Wine, cheese, bread,
a haystack, hot tub, or trail summit,
the sun goes down, the moon comes up,
dancing and enjoying a hot summer night through ’til the sunrise.
The night, the day, then the night again.
This is a time of Champions!
