Happy Bastille Day! It’s also Grandma Holton’s birthday. She was born on this day in 1900, 111 years after the storming of the Bastille. Formally, today is Fête nationale française, and the legal holiday name is Le 14 juillet. Someone made the comment, "Other anthems: sing about monarchs, freedom, and how great their nation is The French: blood. i require the sanguine substance." And we wouldn’t have it any other way. Happy birthday, France, and happy birthday, Grandma!
