Fête de la Victoire in France
Fête de la Victoire is celebrated in France on May 8. It marks the end of World War II in Europe. Many people attend parades or church services to celebrate the Allied Force's victory. It is a national holiday in France, much like Labor Day is in the United States. One important symbol of this holiday is the French flag. Its colors are displayed in banners around the country. Flags of all European nations and the European flag are also displayed at some ceremonies as a symbol of the ongoing peace and unity of Europe.
