Hmmm, maybe the reference to July 12th in 1998 is referring to when France won the World Cup and had even more reason than National Day/Bastille Day to celebrate that year. :wink:

I love July 12th. That day is my birthday. :silly:

You know, I was really surprised to find that many places in the USA also celebrate the French Bastille holiday.

Yes you're right ! France won the Football (as we say here ;)/Soccer World cup...in France ! 3-0 against Brazil :)
Ok ! So your birthday is the 12th of july too ? Great !
You're right, Bastille day is on the 14th of july, as the Bastille was "taken" on the 14th of july 1789 during the french revolution.
But the event chose by the new republican government in 18 wasn't Bastille day but the 14th of july 1790 ! I t was what they called "Fête de la fédération"
Take a look here for more !
