Yes, France and America have a great deal in common, and we should acknowledge that when appropriate; however, that doesn't mean we need to focus on it or go out of the way to celebrate it. If France and America were locked in constant conflict (similar to how some middle eastern countries are), it might be worth discussing at length, but they aren't. It would be no different than pointing out that the sun and bananas are both yellow. Who cares?
I believe "we" as a nation, should embrace all our similarities. Living on one single planet, "we" need to support and acknowledge all our similarities, and even support all our differences. So yes I really feel that America and France should embrace their similarities of Bastille Day with open arms and celebrate each other, and every other country on this planet "we" call Earth.
Yes, America and France, because every national cause for celebration reminds us of good causes and brings good values to our own understanding of the world. We should embrace our similarities as two different nations and remember how the act of sacrifices carried out by great people all around the world should be appreciated and celebrated.
France and America has a lot in common when it comes to independence day. The Americans celebrate it on 4th July and the French on the 14th July. Both countries have a lot of similarities, especially when they date back to the late 18th century and the involvement of French in the American Colonies against the British.
