'Joyeux Le Quatorze Juillet' Celebrating the French revolution is almost as American as celebrating our own Independence day, right? I mean, America DID lead the way and show those Parisian peasants how to take back their government, didn't they? Vive-le revolution! We may call it Bastille Day, but, don't say that to a Frenchmen. He'd be lost. It would be like a Frenchmen telling an American, "Happy Sign the Declaration Day". Just say Happy July 14!
