"Allons Enfants De La Patrie ..." - FREE Bastille Day Activity Sheet!
On Thursday 14th July 2016, Francophiles the world over will be celebrating Bastille Day!
The French National holiday, or La Fête Nationale, has been celebrated for over a century and, contrary to popular belief, doesn’t actually celebrate the storming of the Bastille.
Instead, it commemorates the Fête de la Fédération, which was a celebration to mark the first anniversary of the storming of the Bastille in 1789, and which was a salute to the new constitutional monarchy, the birth of the French Republic and the general notion of liberty in France.
Go here for a downloadable activity sheet to make your own “Cocardes Tricolore”, wear it on the 14th July, and celebrate Bastille Day in style!
