July 14th is the French national holiday. I had the pleasure of being at the Eiffel Tower on July 14th in time to watch the fireworks display, which for the first time since 2000 was fired off from the Eiffel Tower. 500,000 people gathered and listened to live performances of classical music and opera singing before the fireworks. It was magical. Seriously.
