Bastille Day is this Thursday, July 14th. Also known as La Fête Nationale, France Continues to celebrate the storming of the Bastille back in 1790. The Bastille was a prison of ill regard and its storming represented a break with the previous monarchy-led government. In essence, it signified the end of the French revolution and ushered in the modern age.
Today, Bastille Day is celebrated with parades, fireworks and much of the same pride and nationalism as our own 4th of July here in the US. While it is a national holiday in France, Bastille Day celebrations can be found around the world, in such places as Belgium, the UK, Hungary and in many parts of the United States, like Baltimore, New York City, San Francisco and of course New Orleans.
BabyBox.com cannot help but get into the spirit of celebrations as well. We are still riding high from all our own recent fireworks displays, so we will Vive La France by looking at some of our products made in, inspired by or celebrating France today.

These personalized books make the perfect baby gift, birthday gift, holiday gift, and other special occasion gift for children of all ages. Each custom-made, hardcover book can include up to 4 countries and is written for one American child. In today’s world, while Americans are surrounded by different cultures, languages, customs, traditions, & food, some of the traditions of their own heritage may be forgotten. My Heritage Book was developed to help teach children that these differences are a part of heritage and that their own heritages should be embraced. In this personalized book, children can learn about the countries their ancestors came from and some of the traditions they brought to America. By making their initial cultural explorations personal, we hope that their journey will become that more interesting & fun! And of course France is one of the countries that you can choose from to celebrate your own french heritage.
