Eating
   Families in the United States eat 3 meals a
    day. The meals are (chicken, beef, pork, and
    vegetables). Adults in the morning drink a cup
    of coffee or fruit juice and a baked pastry or
    toast. Children will likely eat breakfast that may
    include prepared cereal.

In there language
   Children and adults alike greet one another at all times
    of the day with “Hello” or the more casual “Hi!” In some
    areas of the west, “Hi” is replaced by the more cowboy-
    like “Howdy.” Until late morning, “Good morning” or
    perhaps even “Morning” are acceptable. Similarly,
    “Good afternoon” can be heard from just after noon to
    early evening, when “Good evening” becomes
    appropriate. Interestingly, “Good day” has not become
    a standard anywhere in the country.
Fashion
   In general, residents of the United States tend towards more
    informal, casual dress, particularly in areas outside the eastern
    seaboard. Of course, business settings require anything from
    suits, white shirts, and ties for men and equivalent business attire
    for women to dress slacks and polo shirts or casual blouses. Away
    from formal settings, blue jeans and T-shirts are the most popular
    clothing worn by people of all ages, from toddlers to the elderly,
    although children and younger people will tend to dress more
    casually than adults. Popular trends may also sweep through the
    nation from time to time, such as wearing jeans with holes
    deliberately torn in the knees or the “tie-dye” fashions of the
    1970s.
Family
   Extended families might choose to live in the same
    neighborhood, but newly married couples are usually
    encouraged to move out of their parents’ homes and
    begin to form their own household on their own,
    although economically that is not always possible.
    Multigenerational households are becoming less
    common. Men and women have fairly equal but
    different responsibilities in family life. Increasingly,
    women share in supporting the family financially, and
    men help more with household chores than was the
    case two or three generations ago.
Kids Life
   To school some children ride bikes to school or
    walk, some ride buses provided by the school,
    others will take advantage of the public
    transportation systems available in many
    metropolitan areas, and yet others will ride in a
    carpool or with a parent. The method of
    transportation often depends on whether the
    school is in an urban or rural setting, the time of
    year, and the economic status of the parents.
Socializing
   People in the United States cherish two things:
    the ability to own things, and the freedom to do
    as they wish. These two desires are both a
    blessing and a challenge. On one hand, they are
    quite materialistic and may believe that happiness
    can be bought with money and possessions, which
    they believe they have a right to do. On the other
    hand, the drive to own personal property has
    given them a great incentive to create one of the
    strongest economies in the world with a great
    spirit of independence from oppressive powers.
