i'm filipino too! my british friends find it weird how we always eat dinner together every-single-day/night. we also have our own jobs in the house (i.e. i wash the dishes and my brother hovers the rugs and wipes the wooden floor).

Korean living in Boston. Typical of subcultures in the states Koreans have their own churches, grocery stores, hang outs, and such around here. I'm not sure why but it helps us keep our identity while living in a foreign country I suppose.

i'm hmong. it's not a so-known culture but it's okay. though sometimes, i kinda hate my culture. there are some things that make me despise it. But, i'm one so i guess i have to learn to love it right?
We hmong people, we don't have a country, like every other cultures have. we just live with the thai, laos, cambodia and chinese people. Yep, we just live in their countries.
But where i'm living, i'm living in the U.S.

I'm Indian, but I was born and live in the U.S. I understand and can read a little bit of Urdu, but barely understand any Hindi. I am also a Muslim, which probably has a greater influence of culture on me and my family. It's also the reason that I can read a bit of Arabic. Special holidays include Eid-ul-Fitr and Eid-ul-Adha, both Islamic holidays. I don't celebrate any Indian holidays. That's pretty much it.

I'm Puerto Rican though born and raised in the US. We don't follow through with our traditions as much as we used to (Everyone's busy) but we used to anyway. Though they're not anything too special. We'd just meet whenever we could and have the biggest feast we could cook within 24 hours. Always traditional Spanish food. Didn't matter when it was, or how insignificant the holiday was, we met each time and had a feast. These days we just meet on Christmas and Thanksgiving seeing as the whole family somehow managed to spread all around the country (One uncle's in Florida, another's in California, I'm in New York, it's a mess really)

But beyond that we don't do anything much out of the ordinary. We're all rather lazy, so besides the feast we never go out of our way to do anything much.

Well, im mexican. My Family is Mexican. BUT FAR AWAY FROM THE STEROTYPED MEXICAN. plz dont think OMG! : D do you crunch chicken necks at you weddings like in babble?!!?
no. All i have ever had close to farm animals. Is a little chick a magician gave to me at a party... and my mom gave that away.
My skin color is really white and my hair is red/brown. ^^0
Well, very diferent life in mexico if you live in the city (not living in the country side with my donky or tequila o-o)
Srry if i sound all stingy (its just that i had an encounter with a very dumb person, who was all is it true you can get drunk from the age of 12?! Do you live with your aunts, uncles and grandparents?! )
o_O
Believe it or not we laugh at how we are represented a lot. Cause its so not true. AT ALL. I mean maby theres some truth in it, but not where i come from.
I live in a regular sized house, where my both parents and siblings live (only 2 siblings).
I have cars, yes. NOT PICKUP TRUCKS! I ride the bus to school (no animals in it. Just a bunch of lazy teenagers from the same area, that go to the same school)
My classes are normal clases. Spanish class, literature,Math, biology, physics, etc...

I dont work in a factory with my whole family. I just get home do homework, post these long rants on Crunchy, among other things. I also go to very normal parties. In a club, or a rented place or a house party. No piñatas. (thats only on X-mas posadas),

i go to the movies and watch stuff like Pirates of the Caribean, Harry Potter, Persuit of Happieness, among other things whtever is on at the moment. I go to starbucks sometimes with my friends and get a Mocha Frapuchino.
People in my family all have their own houses we dont all live in the same 2x2 foot house. That would be anoying. And i dont live in a gigantic Hacienda o_O I went to colorado in december on a skiing trip with my cousins and a woman was all. YOUR MEXICAN? no way! you must be rich! do you live in an Hacienda?! (wut is this bonanza?!)

we are very close to our families that is a true factor and see each other almost every weekend. and if you have doubts about the drinking... well we dont get drunk from the age of 12. Were just taught how to drink from a very young age so that we dont go ahead and get ourselves killed from stomach cancer ^^0 cause there really is more that necesary booze at any kind of Party. My dad for example has always made me taste anything hes drinking at the moment, since i can remember.


Well there very diferent version of a Mexicans life right? :3 hows that for a diferent culture

I live in Australia, my mum's Australian and my dad's German.

We don't really do much. We celebrate Christmas, Easter and New Year and I think my dad cooks a BBQ on Australia Day - but we don't actually celebrate it per se.

I think our Christmas celebration is probably the best out of the three - my mum cooks herring salad which is a German/Danish cuisine. (It's really nice - I know some people say it doesn't sound that appealing though).
