Happy Bastille Day! On July 14, 1789, French citizens stormed Bastille, a prison, whose significance was generally more symbolic than practical.
Of course, if your French, you probably don’t celebrate Bastille Day. Instead, I suspect that you celebrate La Fete Nationale (The National Celebration), or, even more likely, le quatorze juillet (the fourteenth of July).

is God in his holy dwelling.”
