<font color=red>*Some Festivals*<BR>
<li><i>National Day</i> - July 14th. On this day, almost everywhere you can experience celebrations. And in Champs Elysées, Paris, there's dress parade, which always attracts a lot of people from all over the world.<BR>
<li><i> Christmas</i> - Dec. 25th. About Christmas, I think everywhere is almost the same. Just remember something you can't forget for Christmans, that's champagne. <BR>
<li><i>New Year's Day</i> - Jan. 1st. People often visit friends, relatives and sending gifts on this day. And there's a traditional rule too. People say you must drink all the wines you have at home on New Year's Eve, not leaving any wine to the next day (Otherwise it will bring back luck).
