The month of July holds a great deal of significance for us Americans and for our French friends as well. While we Yankee Doodle Dandies celebrate the Fourth of July with fireworks, star-spangled banners, and frankfurters, our pals across the pond honor Bastille Day with fireworks (naturally), parades, concerts, and balls. Our Independence Day is July 4, and the French population honors their day of liberty, equality, and fraternity on July 14. We are two nations divided by an ocean, but connected by history.
