8th May: Victory Day in France

France celebrates the end of the second world war today as it commemorates the 74th anniversary of le jour de liberation or la fête de la Victoire today.

It is raining. I watched on TV the presidential commemorations at the arc de triomphe Paris.

Today is a public holiday in France.
