IT SEEMS TO HAVE ALL STARTED WHEN MARIE ANTOINETTE allegedly screamed her infamous one-liner: “Let them eat cake!” (Then again, probably not!)

Quatorze Juillet/ 14 July commemorates the first anniversary of the storming of the Bastille fortress-prison on 14 July 1789 and was seen as a symbol of the uprising modern nation. Now, like the Fourth of July, it’s a great day to celebrate our independence!

Bonnes Fêtes et à bientôt! Jack
