July 14 is annual celebration of Bastille Day in France and French dependencies. This name was given to the French National Day, while in France it’s called La Fête nationale (The National Celebration) or Le quatorze juillet (the fourteenth of July).
Various celebrations and events are organized five days before the largest national holiday in Kiribati, Independence Day. One of these holidays is Senior Citizens’ Day (or Unimwane, as it’s called in Kiribati). In Kiribati, senior citizens are treated with respect, that is why they have their own holiday.
