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.

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.
