Again a holiday I'm not very familliar with. Something to do with mothers and wives storming a prison over the government's mismanagement of resources. There was starvation and rioting and the women of the country had had enough.

If I'm wrong. Quite possible. smile.gif Please post what the holiday is about and how it is celebrated.

Happy Bastille Day!

I'm attracted by the potential for reckless abuse of power.

Actually, It's the storming of the Bastile. The wives storming stuff is a different event totally.

And it's joyeux. Joyeux fete de la Bastille.
