7 July 16

Happy Cherry Day! From 1793 to 1805, France used the "French Republican Calendar," designed to celebrate agrarian life and to sweep away the traditions of the old feudal monarchy. Each day was identified with a crop, a farm tool or a farm animal. What we call 7 July was counted as 19 Messidor and celebrated "Cerise," the cherry. My tie shows lattice pastry on a cherry pie!
