This week we are doing a 4th of July special for our american readers and for everyone interested in celebrating with them. We will also share in every post some interesting facts about the Independence Day and how it affected not only the US but many countries of the world.
Today we will start with some ideas of what to wear. With the 4th of July coming up, there is a lot of celebrations and cookouts going on. As long as it’s comfy and easy going, you are at liberty to go with the patriotic look of blue, red and white (You can’t go wrong!). But first of all let’s learn an interesting information about the 4th of July:
A few countries in Europe and other countries in South America used the Declaration of Independence as an inspiration to fight their own struggles for freedom. For example France:
On July 14, 1789, an outraged group of Parisians stormed the Bastille, a fortress and prison in France where prisoners of influence were held, in hopes of capturing ammunition.
Shortly thereafter, King Louis XVI and his wife Marie Antoinette took refuge in Versailles as the violent peasants pillaged and burned châteaux, and destroyed records of feudal dues—this reaction is known as the grande peur (great fear).
For the peasant class, the Bastille stood as a symbol of the hypocrisy and corruption of the aristocratic government – controlled mostly by nobility and clergy. This important event marked the entry of the popular class into the French Revolution. (Source InfoPlease)
