Marielina - Buenos Aires, Argentina

1. How do people greet each other - shake hands? Bow? Embrace? Other? How do they part? we kiss everybody, even strangers except if they are in a business mode, men kiss each other on the cheek and hug while patting their backs. We aprt the same way.

2. On what occasions would you present or accept gifts? What gifts are considered appropriate? If flowers, what kind? in any occasion but especially for birthdays and christmas ...
umm gifts depend on the receiver's likes especially.
Flowers, well anice combined bouquet of different flowers but if you want to be sure, roses!

3. Are children usualy present/participants at social gatherings? Elderly members of the family? Women?
yes of course, unless they are too young and th eparty is just for adults! they may get a separate table so they can behave their age there, elderly people are most of the times given an important place, such as sitting at the end of the table in a presiding way.

4. How are children disciplined at home and school? it depends on the family, but usually they are asked to go to their room and think about what they have done, maybe a slap in their bottoms.
at school, students can't be disciplined, they are warned orally and writtena nd if the fault is very big they get suspension days at school doing community service

5. Are children segragated in school? If so, how? (e.g. gender)

no, in general as we are quite a cosmopolitan country, we have no problems.

6. Do most people read/write? yes, most of them

7. How are public sanitation, hygiene, and garbage dealt with?
not very well, it should be improved quite a lot but it is tolerable.

8. What is the normal dress of women? Of men? women can be dressed in anything they like, there are some exceptions, for eg, sleevless tshirts, low cut t-shirt, bermudas or very sort shorts or skirts are not allowed in churches and at school.
men wear suits if the job requires one, if not jeans or dress pant and shirts.


9. What foods are taboo? What actions are taboo?
no taboo foods, taboo actions are those that attack the normal morality of any human being.

10. If, as a customer, you touch or handle things that are for sale, will you be considered knowledgeable, or inconsiderate, within or outside your rights?
no you wouldn't but if you break it, you are supposed to pay for it.






11. Is TV available? How widely used? What programs are available? yes tv of any kind is available and widely used. programmes are quite varied.


12. What is the attitude toward drinking/gambling?
I am not so sure but it will depends whenever it affects you.

14. What is the normal pattern of work (school) days and days off? What are normal working hours for men/women?

people normaly work from Monday to Friday for at least 8 or 10 hours, mena nad women. people at factories or shops work on Saturdays, but mainly until midday. Shoppings center and supermarkets are the exception as they are open every day.
children attending only one shift are at school for 5 hours, if they go double shift, 8 hours.

15. What are important holidays? How are they observed?
we have around 15 holiday during all the year and they are not labourable. some others are for specific places or regions.

16. How do people get married? Who makes the arrangements? What is the attitude towards divorce?
we have a civil ceremony and the religious one is optional; we also have civil partnerships for same sex couples.
the groom and bride make the arrangement because they are personal.
Argentina has a law that recognizes the divorce, not it is more accepted than its beginning.

17. What is the common language? Which others are used?
Spanish is our mother and only mother tongue. there are still some languages that belong to the aborigin peoples. English is compulsary at school and if you are studying at university, yu have to take three levels of a foreign language, mainly English, Portuguese, German, French or Italian.

18. What is the principal religion?Is it a state (official) religion? What are its basic dictrines? Who are its originators and shapers?
The principal religion is the Roman apostoloc Catholic, which used to be the only official or state one, but after the reform of the Constitution, there is no offcial one.
Basic doctrines are in the Bible and what priests preach at mass on Sundays.

19. What is the attitude of believers in the principal religion toward other religions/their followers?
We have liberty to profess any religion but there is always a kind of animosity against especial Jewish.

20. Who are the country's national heroes - women as well as men? For what are they celebrated?
San Martin who fred Argentina and many other coutries form the Spanish domination, Belgrano who is the creator of oour national flag, Sarmiento who was a good president and´promoted education, among others.
As regards women, there aren't so many but everybody knows Eva Perón who faught for women' right to vote.



damn Eva Peron, if it weren't for her i'd be free to not vote now, it has to be her!
sorry, i hate that "woman" *hides*

i know, i hate her too but i left my personal opinion apart .....

*sighs in relief* you are a real sweetheart :):):)
i couldn't let my own opinion apart XD
and i didn't name her because i'm tired of hearing foreing people talking about her as almost a saint when she was none of that
(and most people think as we think at least i've heard veeeery few people saying good things of her or i spent my life living in another country... LOL)

1. We usually great each other with one kiss in the cheek if we have confidence with the other person (but sometimes without confidence too LOL) and if it's formal, we shake hands. Guys usually shake hands or hug if there's confidence, but the younger generations got used to the kiss too *G* and now it's not rare to see guys kissing cheeks :P, whatever age . To part ways is the same

2.i usually accept gifts without problem and never thought about aproppristed or not.. well, maybe if my boss comes gifting me lingerie or flowers i'd think about it, because he is a married man LOL (but my former boss, that was a woman, gifted me lingerie and i loved it, because there wasn't a double intention there). We usually give gifts to other people when it's their biorthday, and to family in mother's/father's/children's day, we give gifts to friend in friendship's day and if we feel like gifting we just do, at least i do.

3.Yes, we don't usually have any restrictions. Only if the event is strictly planned for adults. in that case, children are out of it

4. At home, depends on the parents... and judging for what i see, parents today doesn't dicipline children at all. In school, depends on the school, but after the last dictatory it's a bit difficult for the teachers to put discipline without being accused of repression.

5. It depends... sometimes they do, mostly based on adquisitive power, or the place where they live. The color of the skin too.

6. Yes

7. That's a disaster... They recolect garbage all nights and suposedly there are persons cleaning the streets regularly but the reality is different.
There's people who lives of selling cardboard , paper or different materials that you can find in gargabe bags so they go udoing them before they got colected and then the guys if the bag is broken they leave it there. and people are used to throw everything in the streets so i don't know if someone cleans, the fact is that the streets look dirty.
And there aren't much places to throw garbage in the streets.
I use to keep things in my bag and throw at home but most people doesn't do that and children aren't educated to keep places clean either. Of course, dogs are allowed to do their needs in the streets too and nobody get any punishment for that. The government once tried to impose some order there but it never got implemented.

8. It's the same that in most occidental countries, women usually wear dresses, skirts or pants depending of their liking and men use pants (or short pants if they aren't in a formal place)

9.I don't think we have any taboo with food... but well, we don't eat cats or dogs, it's be consider barbarism. And actions... we don't kiss family members in the lips... can't think of any other ... it's of bad education to burp or fart in a not familiar enviroment but not exactly taboo.


10. Depends on the commerce. there are places who have signs telling that the things exposed can't be touched, but other places doesn't care much.

11. TV is available and widely used, almost all people have at leat one at home and you have all kind of local programs. If you can afford paying for Cable, then you have accesss to international programation too, depends on what you pay, what service you contract, and all that. and almost all people have Cable too

12. They are both bad seen if it's done in excess.

13. Depends on what they like to do. there's not much restriction.... Kids usually play, Adults can practice sports, or spend times in their fav hobbies... also internet is avaible for both as a way to spend free time

14. School days are normally 5 hours from Monday to Friday, at morning or afternoon depending on the school. You also have schools that have double days, morning and afternoon, usually children with parents that can't take care of them pay for those schools but are more expensive.
and they have 8/9 months of classes, and 3 moths of summer vacations plus 15 days of wither vacations in the middle
and about work, the usual is 9 hours a day from Monday to Friday or 8 hours and 5 hours on Saturdays. you usually have form half an hour to 1 hour to have lunch, depending on the employers. I work from Monday to Friday and i have 1 hour for lunch. Anyway, it also depends in the kind of work.
We usually have 2 weeks of vacations per year and after working 5 years in the same place we have 3 weeks, then with more years (more than 10) you can even get 28 days.

15. We have local Holidays, like flag day, independence day, and some other days that commemorate important moments in history, in total we have 10 or so along the year and since we are a Catholic country we have holidays at Christmas (1 and half day, can be 2 days), Easter (same as Xmas) and Virgin Mary's day. I't also holiday the 1 st day of the year. Noemally nobody works on those days but the commerces or places that need to work usually dive their employees a day free in exchange for working those other days, and they pay you double when you work on a holiday.

16. People usually get legally married when they want to, but it's also common to live togather without being married first, It was very bad seen when i was a kid, it's common now. And if they have any religion, they can have a religious wedding too according to their usagge since this is a country that allows all kinds of religious practices.
Divorce is common since it's legal. When i was a child it wasn't well seen and it wasn't legal either and the Catholic church and religious people still see it as a bad thing to do.

17. We speak Spanish. Many people speaks or have knowledge of english, we have it as subject in most of the schools but we don't speak it in public, we just use it when it's necesary. And there's people who also speak other languages since we had a big ammount of European immigrants and some of them taught the language to their sons and so on. my grandad was Italian but my dad never wanted to learn....

18. We allow all religions but the official one is Catholicism. There's are also a big amount of Jewish people but their religious days are only observed for those who are part of that religion. Catholic important dates are obcerved by the whole country as not working days but the ones of other religions are not forced to attent to any practice.

19. Normally they are very tolerant, there are some extreme groups but it's npt a common thing.

20. José de San Martín: he was the man whe freed Chile and Perú, and also an important part of the revolution who freed us from Spanish domination. Manuel Belgrano: he was the man who suposedly created our national flag (was also a helper of the freedom revolutiion). Domingo Sarmiento: was the man who impulsed and imposed public education, he was also one of our presidents.
there are more but people have encountered opinions about them XD
San Martin and Belgrano are the only 2 whose death dates are remembered in a holiday, and Sarmiento's is remembered too but only the teachers and students have that day free.

This is for Japan (if I still remember *lol*)

10. If, as a customer, you touch or handle things that are for sale, will you be considered knowledgeable, or inconsiderate, within or outside your rights?

Yes!!! It is one of the most important thing. Every family has at least one, and all kinds of programs are available from education to anime.

- I don't believe there is any strong oppositions against other religions.

20. Who are the country's national heroes - women as well as men? For what are they celebrated?

- We celebrate emperor's birthdays as national holidays. There are lots of heroes in each regions. Personally I consider 'Murasaki-shikibu' and 'Seisho-nagon' who are two ancient Japanese authors as women heroes.

Here it goes. Kind of crappy, hope you don’t mind.
Speaking for China, mainland, big city like Beijing, to be specific.

1. How do people greet each other - shake hands? Bow? Embrace? Other? How do they part?
For first met strangers, shake hands mostly, other kind of body contacts are pretty rare. For those know each other already, just greeting orally, “hello”, “how’s it going”things like that, maybe hug once in a while, but that’s between acquaitances. When part, just say goodbye and maybe wave.

2. On what occasions would you present or accept gifts? What gifts are considered appropriate? If flowers, what kind?
Birthdays, Weddings(cash is more traditional in this case), maybe valentine’s, visit patients in hospital, “long time no see”visit, visit for specific purpose.
Food, wine are the most common stuff. For lovers there’s more romantic/practical choices, flowers are mostly for lovers and patients for what I know.

3. Are children usualy present/participants at social gatherings? Elderly members of the family? Women?
I think yeah, pretty much everyone.

4. How are children disciplined at home and school?
I’m not sure I’m getting this question right, does it mean how are they punished? Mostly orally, and if you don’t do your homework or sth, they may need to speak to your parents, and assign more homework for you to make it up maybe, or you’re banned from watching tv I guess.

5. Are children segragated in school? If so, how? (e.g. gender)
Not really. Some school may have advanced class for those kid with really good grades. In big cities like Shanghai, there’s several high schools just for girls.

6. Do most people read/write?
Yes, there’s 9 years of Compulsory Education.

7. How are public sanitation, hygiene, and garbage dealt with?
Pretty much the same as in US, from what I’ve seen.

8. What is the normal dress of women? Of men?
Pretty much the same as in US too. Jeans,Tshirts,shirts, skirts, shorts, heels.

9. What foods are taboo? What actions are taboo?
Food, only for certain nation (relatively small portion of all people), things like pork.
Actions are probably similar as in US.

10. If, as a customer, you touch or handle things that are for sale, will you be considered knowledgeable, or inconsiderate, within or outside your rights?
Pretty much the same as in US.


11. Is TV available? How widely used? What programs are available?
Yeah, every family, many have more than one.
Content wise, it’s more restricted, we don’t have cable like SHOWTIME that can show soft core porn or really violent stuff.

12. What is the attitude toward drinking/gambling?
Pretty much the same as in US.

13. How do adults/children spend their free time?
Pretty much the same as in US.

14. What is the normal pattern of work (school) days and days off? What are normal working hours for men/women?
Monday to Friday, nine to five/six. Men/women are pretty much the same.

15. What are important holidays? How are they observed?
Spring Festival is the most important, family reunion, fireworks, visiting relatives and friends, really national, more stay-at-home style. And Independence Day(Oct 1st), both of them give a whole week off. The latter involves more outdoor activities, like traveling long distance. And mid-autumn festival, for reunions too, and we have moon cake. And several other holidays…

16. How do people get married? Who makes the arrangements? What is the attitude towards divorce?
Nowadays, young people just fall in love freely then get married.
Still judgemental on some level, but it happens a lot.

17. What is the common language? Which others are used?
Mandarin, lots of others due to how big China is. Catanese etc.

18. What is the principal religion?Is it a state (official) religion? What are its basic dictrines? Who are its originators and shapers?
I don’t think there’s such thing (if communism doesn’t count, ha).
In fact there are a lot less people that are religious in China than in US. I would say Buddhism may be the most popular one compare to others. For the rest of questions, I honestly don’t know…

19. What is the attitude of believers in the principal religion toward other religions/their followers?

Well Buddhism kind of has a theme of everyone is equal (as far as I know), so ideally there shouldn’t be much of an issue. But I’m sure there’re extreme believers, like it would happen everywhere else in the world, who would take it too far that think it overrules everything else.

20. Who are the country's national heroes - women as well as men? For what are they celebrated?
Chairman Mao probably, just like Benjamin, he’s on our 100 bills. For leading our people to independence.

Oh, wow, those are many questions - I hope I can answer them all in the little time I've got right now. But generally customs around here don't differ so much from those in the US. And about disciplinig children etc. I can only speak for our family or the people I know - I bet there are others.

1. People generally great by shaking hands if they are not close friends or family. Among friends and family people embrace.

2. Gifts are common for a birthday and Christmas or a special occasion like a Christening, an anniversary celebration you've been invited to, graduation or the like. Children sometimes do get little gifts for their first day at school or first day in kindergarten, just to make that day even more special.
The gift should fit the occassion and the person presenting it. I mean, red roses and diamond rings shouldn't come from anyone else but my hubby - know what I mean? xD

3. Yes, children, elderly family members and women are naturally just as welcome to any family celebration as the mighty men. Otherwise those would probably starve anyhow, for who usually does the cooking for those celebrations?! :))

4. There should be striked rules they have to learn and go by and to make them follow those there should be consequences if they are disobeyed, which by no means means violence though. Beating children is forbidden by law - in public and at home, too. And it's not necessary to hit a child, in my POV - there are other, fairer and more educational means of punishment.

5. No, they are not. Boys and girls are educated together.

6. Yes.

7. Very well, I think. Sure there's always those spots in each city that could be cleaner and some people are just pigs and drop their trash just everywhere, but that is taken care of to a good extent, so all in all I think it's pretty clean.

8. People are allowed to wear whatever they want. So women can wear skirts or pants as they please. No restrictions. I am talking about the German people born and raised here and living by German standards - not the immigrated folks. They tend to not interade well and stick to the customs of the countries they came from, but German women don't cover themselves from head to toe because men dictate them to do so.

9. I don't think there are any taboos. Maybe there should be. lol

10. Unless it's specifically pointed out not to touch items, a customer can touch and handle things for sale. If you break them though, you are expected to pay for them. I'm not sure though if the store can enforce that by legal rights. My kid broke something in a store once accidentally and although I offered to pay for it, they said it was okay.

11. Sure. TV's everywhere and I never counted all the programs we've got. We have pay TV in addition to the free channels, so there's Discovery Channel, CNN, Disney Channel and all that stuff, too. I think we've got like 50 programs and all show nothing but crap at times - around the clock. LOL

12. It's legal and unfortunately especially the drinking thing has become a problem among young people, due to the flat rates at bars - meaning they are allowed to drink as much as they can and end up in a coma too many times. It is not appreciated to see people walk the street at 10 in the morning with a bottle of beer in their hands, but it is done nevertheless and there's no law against that. Everyone over the age of 18 can drink and gamble all they want.

13. That is a very general question for very different people, so unable to answer. Too much playstation, TV, computer and Nintendo these days for the kids, I'd say. But there are those who play games with their children, go on outings, do sports just as much as those who sit in front of a computer all day long. So I really can't answer that for all.

14. I can't answer that as well. A nurse working at a hospital does have different working hours naturally than a woman working at a store that has business hours. THere are no special working hours for men or women - it all depends on their profession. Generally there is no differences between men or women - officially - which means you've got the free choice of profession and woman can work as fire fighter and men in a Kindergarten if they choose so. But till this very day women are still paid less for the same work in many times, unfair as that is!

15. The most important holidays are the Christian holidays Christmas and Eastern, I'd say. People have a couple of days of, usually families get together and tables break under loads of food and presents. xD

16. You get married at the registry office at city hall. That's the law. If you choose so, you can have a second ceremony in church, but that's just optional. The couple itself usually plans and arranges everything, but usually friends and family help. In some families it is still common for the father of the bride to pay the entire show, but that doesn't go for all. Divorce is common, sadly. Although they all vow 'forever', it just doesn't work in all cases, but you are not banished from society because of that. :))

17. German. But all students learn English in school. It's not spoken though unless your business partner is a foreigner or you are dealing with someone unable to speak German - tourist, customer, someone who's been living here for 30 years and still doesn't know the language ... I speak both German and English fluently, I'd say.

Gotta go for now. I try to answer the rest later. Sorry of spelling mistakes. I've been trying to type quickly and didn't reread it.

18.


Okay, and the rest from the German deligation ... I hope cujlover answers your questions, too. She may have something to add or even correct, if my answer was too personal/based on personal opinion.

18. Germany is a Christian country, so you know the basics. It's about the same percentage of Catholic and Protestant Christians and of course there are a few percentages of people with different religions living here, too, such as Moslems and Judes. These believes are mostly throughout those people who immigrated here.

19. I cannot answer that. Let's say by law everyone is allowed to practice their own believe and although this is a Christian country there are mosques for the Moslems and Jewish temples. The tolerance of the other believes differs from person to person. These days the 'problem' here seems to lie with the more or less fanatic Moslems, who put their believe and their way of living beyond all, even if it goes against the laws and rules of the country they live in. Which I personally think is inacceptable. If I live in another country I have the decency to learn their language and go by their laws, otherwise I have no place to stay there. So I personally don't toterate these people, which does not mean I don't like Moslems in general. My cousin is married to the nicest Turkish woman and she and all of her family are so lovely and she explained a couple of intersting things about her believe. So if there is acceptance and tolerance on both sides, I don't see why people of different believes shouldn't be able to get along. Know what I mean?

20. I'm not sure we've got 'national heroes'. There are for sure people who earn respect and did great deeds, but what are 'heroes'. Ex-chancellor Helmut Kohl did a lot to see this country reunited and bring East and West back together. The wall fell 20 years ago and actually it is our 20th national holiday, celebrating that day, today. Does that make him a hero? Isn't any unknown soldier at that wall who looked the other way and went against the order to shoot if someone tried to flee from the East not a greater man?
Sorry, but there's no one who comes to mind right away. Claus Schenk Count von STauffenberg sure was curageous trying to assassinate Hitler, but he's not celebrated for that annually. There are surely lots of men and women who did great things, but this county lacks heroes, I'm afraid.


I hope this was helpful in any way? Good luck with your paper!!

This is for France, I've been in the USA 2 years and part of the reason I haven't been feeling home sick is that we have very similar customs.

1. How do people greet each other - shake hands? Bow? Embrace? Other? How do they part?
Formal = handshake
Friends/Family, people you just met but it's not really "formal" = Kiss on the cheek, 2 or 4... or one. For woman/woman man/woman. Man/man shake hands.
Strangely we kiss a lot but rarely hug! I noticed the opposite in the USA.

2. On what occasions would you present or accept gifts? What gifts are considered appropriate? If flowers, what kind?
Mostly birthdays, weddings, Christmas.
Not really different than the US, except for one thing, the Thank You notes, we don't really send any.

3. Are children usually present/participants at social gatherings? Elderly members of the family? Women?
Yes usually everyone is present.

4. How are children disciplined at home and school?
I don't know if I can answer that. I guess if they do something bad at school they will get one hour or more of detention(?), or get expelled for a few days. At home I don't know, mostly "go to your room" "no tv for you for a week"... I don't know if that's what you wanted to know.

5. Are children segragated in school? If so, how? (e.g. gender)
No, everybody together.

6. Do most people read/write?
Yes.

7. How are public sanitation, hygiene, and garbage dealt with?
Same as the USA I think.

8. What is the normal dress of women? Of men?
Just be dressed. Haha, near the beach people tend to stay in their swimsuit while going into town since it's so close, it's not really accepted, especially if you enter a store you should put on a t-shirt.
I don't know if this is actually in place or not (or if they want to put it there, I don't follow the French politics a lot since I'm here) but they want to forbid women to wear a (full on) burqa (Basically we need to see your face)

9. What foods are taboo? What actions are taboo?
I don't think any food is really taboo...

10. If, as a customer, you touch or handle things that are for sale, will you be considered knowledgeable, or inconsiderate, within or outside your rights?
That's fine to touch things. But if you break it you buy it :p

11. Is TV available? How widely used? What programs are available?
Yes. Widely. Any kind of programs, we copy the US tv a lot too. If we have foreign show/movie on, they are dubbed in French.

12. What is the attitude toward drinking/gambling?
Drinking and gambling you can do as long as you are 18. There is a lot of drinking before 18, I've never seen anybody *really* care unless someone dies because of it.

13. How do adults/children spend their free time?
Depends, really similar to the US, I wouldn't know what to say, everybody do their own thing.

14. What is the normal pattern of work (school) days and days off? What are normal working hours for men/women?
School: 5 days a week, from 8am to 5pm usually.
Work is 35 hours per week. You have quite a lot of vacation time, I think my dad got 25 days this year for example.

15. What are important holidays? How are they observed?
Christmas, Easter, same as the US.

16. How do people get married? Who makes the arrangements? What is the attitude towards divorce?
Usually the couple takes care of everything.
Attitude is the same as in the USA I would say. It's something at the time my grandparents lived nobody would find acceptable but now...

17. What is the common language? Which others are used?
French. That's about it. I don't think we are very good with foreign language though I'm hoping English is getting better. Some people learn German as it is close to us. Also a lot of Arabic.

18. What is the principal religion?Is it a state (official) religion? What are its basic dictrines? Who are its originators and shapers?
No "official" religion. I *guess* the two main ones are Christian and Muslim

19. What is the attitude of believers in the principal religion toward other religions/their followers?
/


20. Who are the country's national heroes - women as well as men? For what are they celebrated?
I don't have the time to really think about it but right now one name come to my mind it's Marie Curie.

I have to go now, I don't know when I'll be back but if you're not done with those yet I'll come and edit.

Canadian, eh. :)
Canada is a mishmash of cultures and traditions and I don't really believe we have many of our own. We copy or mirror the US in a lot of things so my answers will more than likely be pretty boring. :/


1. How do people greet each other - shake hands? Bow? Embrace? Other? How do they part?
Same as the US I'd think - shaking hands, hugging, depending on the circumstances and the relationship.

2. On what occasions would you present or accept gifts? What gifts are considered appropriate? If flowers, what kind?
Birthdays, weddings, showers, graduations, etc - gift cards are very popular right now because they're more versatile. Flowers don't really have a set meaning, except perhaps roses.

3. Are children usualy present/participants at social gatherings? Elderly members of the family? Women?
Elderly - yes, Women - yes, Children - unfortunately :P

4. How are children disciplined at home and school?
At school there are suspensions and expulsions. At home mostly groundings from TV, computer, friends but in those situations sometimes the parents are the ones suffering more because the kid is bored and underfoot. :)

5. Are children segragated in school? If so, how? (e.g. gender)
We do have private schools that segregate gender but they aren't that common. Also, public sports schools, art schools, science schools so kids can specialize earlier.

6. Do most people read/write? Yes I believe so. We have a good education system so I'd imagine most people at least have the basics.

7. How are public sanitation, hygiene, and garbage dealt with?
As far as I know, garbage pickup is done by most cities without charge and as for my own city, we now have city recycling trucks that pick up once a week as well. Public hygiene? You mean health care? We have public health care and don't pay for hospital stays, doctors' visits, etc.

8. What is the normal dress of women? Of men? Same as the US - anywhere from trendy chic to formal business to t-shirts and jeans (my fave).

9. What foods are taboo? What actions are taboo? I don't think we have any taboo foods *thinks* - nope I don't think so. As for actions, except illegal ones I can't think of any.

10. If, as a customer, you touch or handle things that are for sale, will you be considered knowledgeable, or inconsiderate, within or outside your rights? Same as the US - if it's there and there's no sign saying not to, you can touch.

11. Is TV available? How widely used? What programs are available? Satellite TV makes it so we can watch whatever we want. Canada has channels of their own but mostly it's US channels.

12. What is the attitude toward drinking/gambling? The drinking age in Canada is 19 except for Alberta and I believe Quebec. The same would go for the gambling age, as well. Both are acceptable within reason but unfortunately drunk driving is still an issue. We have a lot of casinos owned privately, by government and by First Nations.

13. How do adults/children spend their free time? If you hear the word Canada, you automatically think HOCKEY and yeah, we have a lot of that - men, women, kids - it's still our national pass time. Because of the snow (no we don't live in igloos or wear snowshoes everyday) we have a lot of outdoor activities; skiing, hiking, skating, mountain biking. Other than that it's the same as everywhere else; computer, video games, TV, movies, and sometimes we can actually get our kids to do something educational like go to a museum, zoo or science center.

14. What is the normal pattern of work (school) days and days off? What are normal working hours for men/women? Same as the US.

15. What are important holidays? How are they observed? Same as the US as well, except our Thanksgiving is in October and we have Canada Day on July 1st.

16. How do people get married? Who makes the arrangements? What is the attitude towards divorce? I believe all of Canada or at least the majority of it recognizes gay marriage and most provinces and territories have since 2004/05. I'm kinda proud of that fact. Other than that, our het marriages are basically the same as the US. Divorce is similar, as well.

17. What is the common language? Which others are used? I might get blasted by my French Canadian friends but I believe English is the most common followed, of course, by French. We used to learn french in Elementary school but it's not as widely common to do so anymore.

18. What is the principal religion?Is it a state (official) religion? What are its basic dictrines? Who are its originators and shapers? Again, same as the US - we have Christianity in many forms as well as some smaller religions.

19. What is the attitude of believers in the principal religion toward other religions/their followers? Same as everywhere else.

20. Who are the country's national heroes - women as well as men? For what are they celebrated?
I think that Terry Fox is Canada's number one hero. He faced great adversity and overcame many difficulties and became an inspiration to people all over the world. Not many people accomplish in a long lifetime what he accomplished in such a short life. Others include Wayne Gretzky (hockey of course), Tommy Douglas (Father of Medicare), Pierre Trudeau (flamboyant prime minister), David Suzuki (science), Alexander Graham Bell, and *coughs* Celine Dion *coughs again*. I think it depends on who you ask. :)

Hope I did okay.


I don't know if this will be of any help - since I'm sooooooo late, sorry! - but here it is.

Italy - but things differ from north to south

1. How do people greet each other - shake hands? Bow? Embrace? Other? How do they part?
Friends/family: hug, a pat on the shoulder, three kisses on the cheeks (it brings good fortune, they say)
Work: shaking hands

2. On what occasions would you present or accept gifts? What gifts are considered appropriate? If flowers, what kind?
When someone invites you for dinner/supper, usually you bring something with you (wine, sweets, flowers or a plant - if you know that the lady of the house loves them)
Then for birthday, Christmas, Baptism, Wedding and University Degree

3. Are children usualy present/participants at social gatherings? Elderly members of the family? Women?
It depends, but usualy parents decide if they want to bring their children with them. Elderly members of the family are always welcome as are women.

4. How are children disciplined at home and school?
Ah, things are different now :)
At home, parents prohibit them to watch the TV or to do something they really like - like going out at night or videogames or whatever.
At school, the teacher writes a note for the parents three times, then the kid get a note on the class register, then the school principal call the kid's parents and then the kid gets a suspension.

5. Are children segragated in school? If so, how? (e.g. gender)
Not at all.

6. Do most people read/write?
Good question. But maybe you sould have asked if people read good books or garbage ;) Judjing by the way young people write, I have to say that nobody reads and nobody studies at all. And maybe I should say that many people write, but they write mostly short messages on their mobile phones!
We have many prizes for writers and we have many good writers; I must say that even the bookshops are always full of people. But maybe, when they forces young people to study and analyze books such as 'I promessi sposi' (written by Alessandro Manzoni), they kind of turn them away from reading, because when you're force to read and analyze every single word of a book, you get bore to the core. And it's a pity because Manzoni's book is really a great book!

7. How are public sanitation, hygiene, and garbage dealt with?
It depends. They all must be the same, but in fact it isn't so. In the north part of the country there's the differentiated waste disposal. In the south, there isn't any. And then there's the issue about the waste incinerator because no one wants them near their houses and cities.
Public sanitation is free for everybody, you only have to pay a small price but you must wait a long time to get the job done. If you pay a private hospital, you get the job done immediately.
Hygiene... I can only speak for what I've seen with my own eyes and I must say that I was younger when I used to go on holiday with my parents. At the butcher's: in the north part of the country, meat is show behind glasses, into a refrigerator. In the south, meat was hanging out in the open, outside the butcher's shop. But I don't know if the same thing happens in all the southern cities.

8. What is the normal dress of women? Of men?
Women can wear anything they want, from trousers to skirts. Men stick to trousers ;)

9. What foods are taboo? What actions are taboo?
I don't think there are taboo foods - apart from the common things like dogs or rats! And as for actions, to swear is a bad action, to insult, too. Point your finger toward someone is impolite, especially for children :) And the usual thing all people do but don't do when they have company - like barfing ;)

10. If, as a customer, you touch or handle things that are for sale, will you be considered knowledgeable, or inconsiderate, within or outside your rights?
It depends. If the things is food, it depends if it's fresh or packed. Fruits must be touch and hadle wearing plastic glooves.
And as for other kind of things, it's state clearly outside or inside the shop if you are allowed to touch it or if you have to ask for the shop assistance's help.

11. Is TV available? How widely used? What programs are available?
I think there are at least three TVs in every house, because the men want to watch sports, women like romantic movies and the children watch cartoons. We have all kind of programs, but certain time bands are children safe.


12. What is the attitude toward drinking/gambling?
We are now at 'zero tollerance' toward drinking if you are driving because we are having more and more car accidents due to this problem. But if you drink your head out and then you go home - if you are still able to do it - walking, no one says a thing - except maybe for your wife ;)
Gambling is accepted, too, always within the laws.

13. How do adults/children spend their free time?
The same ways all people do: cinema, shopping, sport, internet, travelling, sightseing.

14. What is the normal pattern of work (school) days and days off? What are normal working hours for men/women?
Children have three months off - june, july, august - since it's too hot to study. Then they have Eastern holidays (the holy week), from the 24th December to the 2nd of January and some other Holidays like 8th of December or 2nd November.
As for work, every factory choose their own calendar according with their employers. But usually for Christmas and Easter, they're home.

15. What are important holidays? How are they observed?
Christmas, Easter and 1st January. And the 1st of May (workers' holiday). Then we have 2nd June (Republic Holiday), 2nd November (we remember our dead people) and 8th December (Immaculate Conception). Then every city has its own patron saint. On those days, people usually don't go to work/school.

16. How do people get married? Who makes the arrangements? What is the attitude towards divorce?
We are totally free to get married to whoever we want, the only ones making the arrangements are the man and woman who want to get married. We don't have gay marriage, though.
Even if elderly people still think that divorcing is a sin, there isn't any real problem toward divorce.

17. What is the common language? Which others are used?
The common language is Italian, but every city and Region have their own dialect. Then, in the north-east part of the country, people speak German, too, since they're close to Germany and Austria.

18. What is the principal religion?Is it a state (official) religion? What are its basic dictrines? Who are its originators and shapers?
It isn't an official religion but in fact most of people are Catholic. Catholic believe in Jesus, God and the Holy Ghost and head of the religion is the Pope.

19. What is the attitude of believers in the principal religion toward other religions/their followers?
There's an issue, actually, toward other religion, but not because we don't want them, but because someone feels it's impolite to show our creed by hanging the crucifix in the classrooms or in the offices and so on.
But there are plenty of churches and places where people can go to celebrate their religions and there isn't any kind of racism (Offically, at least) towards any of them.

20. Who are the country's national heroes - women as well as men? For what are they celebrated?
I think we celebrate Saints, the most. As I've already said, every city has its own patron and it celebrates him/her with huge feasts. Then we have many other people such as Giuseppe Garibaldi (who helped the unification of Italy) Cristoforo Colombo and Amerigo Vespucci (discoverers of America) Leonardo Da Vinci and all the other wonderful artists and many others.

Well, since during my life I lived in 3 different countries, I am going to choose just one of them – Israel.

1. How do people greet each other - shake hands? Bow? Embrace? Other? How do they part? Depends on the occasion, of course; if you know the person, then you hug and kiss, both for greeting and parting. Even with colleagues. :) May be not everyday at work, but if you meet in the street, or get together, then it’s quite normal. When you are introduced to a new person, then handshake.

2. On what occasions would you present or accept gifts? Birthday, anniversaries, celebrations, sometimes when coming for a visit.
What gifts are considered appropriate? Depends on the situation, again. When you go to some event, like wedding, bar-mitzvah (a boy turns 13 years old), bat-mitzvah (a girl turns 12 years old, both occasions are very important as an entrance into adulthood) then it’s mostly money, the amount should be at least equal to the cost of you portion. Of course, if it’s a relative or close friend, it will be more. It’s considered not nice to be overly generous, because then when there is ‘your’ occasion the person should give an equal amount and if he/she can’t afford it, they will be embarrassed.
‘Things' are also given as a present but it’s mostly as gifts for birthday to friends and relatives when you know what they like.
If flowers, what kind? Not so much but also given as a gift, mostly as accompanying gift. Both fresh cut flowers, flower arrangements or in the pots, or small trees (like lemons). Of course, if a person is known for loving flowers, or having a big garden, then it will be more substantial gift in the amount and quality (and may be rarity) of flowers.

3. Are children usualy present/participants at social gatherings? Absolutely yes. It’s absolutely normal to bring even one month old baby to the gathering.
Elderly members of the family? Yes. Women? Yes.

4. How are children disciplined at home and school? As for home, it’s very much depends on the family itself, no beating, of course, at least officially, allowed though we all know that it sometimes happens, but parents may be prosecuted if caught and if child comes to school with some signs of beating or otherwise harsh punishment, social services will be called. For the children above toddlers age it’s mostly grounding or denying some favorite things. As for the toddlers, well, they are very clever and rule everywhere. Their favorite habit that they very early pick from each other, is to drop to the floor and begin to haul, cry crocodile tears, beat him/herself and roll on the floor; occasional biting of the distressed parent is a normal thing. :)

In schools it’s mostly threat to talk to the parents or send to physiologist.

5. Are children segregated in school? If so, how? (e.g. gender) Not in public schools but yes in the religious schools, boy and girls separately.

6. Do most people read/write? Yes.

7. How are public sanitation, hygiene, and garbage dealt with? Eh, it’s a part of government services. I am not sure how to answer this question since I am not picking at other ‘respondents’ answers. May be of the special note will be the rarity of garbage bins, especially near the government buildings or where there is lot of people. Garbage bins are one of the favorite places for terrorists of big and small caliber to put bombs. Also, children from the very young age are taught not to pick up anything from the ground, especially small attractive things, there were occasions when those things explode and child is left without a hand, or eye, or poisoned in some way.


8. What is the normal dress of women? If we are not talking about religious people, then it still depends of the occasion. Generally, pants very popular and what is call ‘taiz’, i.e. leggings with tunic (the length of the tunic somewhere in the middle between knee and hip), it’s normal to come like that to the work, skirts either very short or long but with a long opening on the side. It’s interesting that transparent tops are a big ‘no’ but very short (you can see all the belly) and sometimes strapless tops are OK. But this is for the street not for work (unless you work in the bar, of course). For religious women no such luck. The legs should be covered completely (either by long skirt or pantyhoses), the arms and hands should be covered and also hair either by scarf, turban (a tiny one) or wig.
Of men? Here, again, depends of the occasion and degree of religiousness. For a very religious men (orthodox) and boys it will be black coat and fury hat. Otherwise, nothing special, just think California most of the year.
The above description is for Jewish population. There are also Arabs and Druzes. Arabs are Muslims and Christians (mostly Catholics but also Orthodox). Non religious Arabs dress pretty much the same as Jews, it’s a climate that dictate the clothing, not your origin, especially in the city. In the villages the closing is more conservative, mostly long dress for women(not skirt) but face cover is not widespread.
I am not sure if you ever heard about Druzes, here is the link about them from Wikipedia http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Druze. The men have a very interesting type of pants that I think particular to there religion. It’s very difficult to describe, here I found an image for you. http://1.bp.blogspot.com/_hIGxt_kA4Sk/R8KPZhuOidI/AAAAAAAAAtU/p-Vu7E_B7YU/s320/85334282_879b889ba2.jpg (if you can’t follow the link, just google images for Druse)


9. What foods are taboo? There is what called Kosher food, mostly that you can’t eat certain foods together and you can’t eat certain foods at all, mostly known pork but also fish that don’t have scales.
What actions are taboo? I can’t think about anything specific for the general population that differs from USA or Canada but religious people are the whole world in itself and I am not an expert. But I am going to give you 2 interesting facts that I learnt during my recent (this May) trip to Israel (I went for my niece wedding) from my friend. It’s about a religious community and not about taboos, but opposite of taboo, which surprised me. My understanding that it’s a recent development, not something that existed for ages. Not married woman who turned 35 years old can go to the rabbi (priest) and get a special dispensation to sleep with a man and have a child while not being married at all; second one is even stranger and it’s not very advertised but still exists on sidelines. To be a gay man is a very big sin (taboo) but to be a lesbian is OK. Why? Because God said “Man can’t lay with another man”, but nothing about the women (it’s not a joke, it's an official explanation).

10. If, as a customer, you touch or handle things that are for sale, will you be considered knowledgeable, or inconsiderate, within or outside your rights? No

11. Is TV available? Yes. How widely used? Very; many people have more than one. What programs are available? Depends on your cable subscription; if you are interested, hundreds, literally.
12. What is the attitude toward drinking/gambling? You can’t drink a lot when it’s 45 C outside 9 months a year; you are just considered stupid. Not sure about gambling, I don’t think it’s popular, even within a reasonable norms, but I am not an expert.

13. How do adults/children spend their free time? Depends on what you like but families’ and friends get together are very, very popular; going to the beaches or country clubs is worth mentioning, and travel abroad is very popular especially when week end in Turkey will cost you less then week end in Eilat (very popular resort on the Red Sea).



14. What is the normal pattern of work (school) days and days off? What are normal working hours for men/women? No difference for men/women. Working week starts on Sunday and runs till Friday noon. Same goes for schools/Universities. Lunch break in many places lasts hours (the famous siesta). For example, banks open from 8:30 AM till 12:30 PM and then from 4PM till 6PM, so the most government services. Sometimes it’s till 7 or 8 PM but then every second day you work only till 12:30 PM.

15. What are important holidays? A lot of them. For example during Sept there are only a few school days, the rest of them are holiday. 2 most important are New Year (Sept in Jewish calendar) and Pessah (Easter, approximately the same time). New Year (Dec 31/Jan 1) is called Sylvester and celebrated mostly by young people going to the bars. Jan 1st is normal working day.
How are they observed? People go to Synagogue (even not very religious ones) then get together for the special family meal.

16. How do people get married? Officially, there is only religious marriage otherwise you have to go to another country to get married.
Who makes the arrangements? There is an official religious office that called in Hebrew Rabbanut (from the word Rabbi, priest)
What is the attitude towards divorce? Very hard to get.  As in marriage, you have to go Rabbanut to get one. It’s hard to get, but it’s not forbidden.

17. What is the common language? Well, the official language of the country is Hebrew. Which others are used? Arabic, of course, it’s learned in the most of (Hebrew) schools. By now Russian considered 3rd language used by the population, almost everybody speaks English (a must subject in schools), French is very popular too.

18. What is the principal religion? Jewish religion.
Is it a state (official) religion? Yes.
What are its basic doctrines? There is only one god, you can’t mention his name and you can’t put his image anywhere. For all the rest see Old Testament. 
Who are its originators and shapers? Moses.

19. What is the attitude of believers in the principal religion toward other religions/their followers? Officially, we all live in peace, unofficially, it’s not different from any other place.

20. Who are the country's national heroes - women as well as men? For what are they celebrated? Well, there are too many of those, the same as in any country. For the old days, see Old Testament; then I would mention Bar Kohba, the leader of the uprising against Romans. For the period between fall of Jerusalem in 71 AD to the 20th century, there are a number of Rabbis who are mostly known for their wisdom. In mordern times it will be Herzl, who considered the Father of the modern State of Israel.
