I grew up in America, but my parents are from Ghana. I'm not really aware of whatever traditions/holidays they have over there. I do have some traditional clothing though (for church since all the adults are from there, too). I am through and through, an American.

Despite that I grew up in America. (More specifically, my family). We haven't been aware of our traditions in general. So generally, I have no clue to how close we really are, honest;y.

Not close enough.

American, so it's hard to tell. My family only really celebrates Christmas and Thanksgiving, occasionally we'll watch the fireworks on the 4th of July. I don't watch tv, most of my video watching is YouTube and CR. If my Steam and GoG Libraries are any indication definitely in touch with consumer culture.

I'm not.

I'm made of many nationalities but things like culture and customs just don't fall high on my "things-that-matter"-o-meter.

Finland we don't have any special culture things except something like midsummer or some weird sports.....like Wife-carrying.
And silence and personal space is something worth to mention about our culture.
Myself I really appreciate silence and own space and I really like midsummer

My housemates and I play Can-Fan when it's warm enough to run the ceiling fan on our enclosed porch. We try and hit each other with empty beer cans that we throw into the fan. We also don't like talking to the police.

It's not so much a racial culture as it is a socio-economic culture.

Being that I'm part German, Ukraine, French, Irish, Russian and some other stuff we aren't sure about... I'm not sure that I have any "culture" to be close to.
American? I guess. We like Christmas, New Years and Thanksgiving.... just about any other holiday we can have off and still get paid for it.

I'm bicultural, but I'm closer to my Chinese culture. We still call family with honorifics, and my parents adhere to feng shui.

Louisiana culture... I only really like it because of gumbo and Mardi Gras. I do kinda wanna learn Cajun, though.

I keep ties with my culture by celebrating Lunar New Years by eating Lunar New Year's food, taking and giving money and blessings interchangeably, watching martial art demonstrations, watching the dragon dance, and watching fireworks. I rarely cook Vietnamese for myself, but I remember how to. I occasionally go out to eat Vietnamese food.

Beyond that, nothing else from my culture sticks with me.
