What is Culture Square
Culturesquare is the place where all different cultures meet, Culturesquare is like a town squareyour for culture You learn about different cultures from around the world. it gives you a deeper understanding of our world.
Merriam-Webster Dictionary defines Culture as “the beliefs, customs, arts, etc., of a particular society, group, place, or time. : a particular society that has its own beliefs, ways of life, art, etc. : a way of thinking, behaving, or working that exists in a place or organization (such as a business)”.
As the Dictionary rightly puts it, “Culture is the arts and other manifestations of human intellectual achievement regarded collectively”. Culture is the characteristics of a particular group of people, defined by everything from language, religion, social habits, cuisine, music and so no. So no matter where you live or where you come from you have a culture (there is a certain way people do things in that region or
part of the world) For example, Americans celebrate thanksgiving on the Last Thursday of November and that usually means eating Turkey and spending time with family.
In other parts of the world people carry out rituals and ceremonies for different event, the birth of a child is celebrated differently from, marriage and dead celebrations. For example in Africa specifically Cameroon, there is a particular way people celebrate the death of a member of the family and it is slightly or totally different from one group of people (tribe) to an other within the same geographical area (country). for example in Cameroon there more than 200 different tribe which means more than 200 ways of celebrating birth, death, marriage, coronation and other activities.
About Culture Square
I the creator, Leke was inspired to start Culture Square when I realized that I had a passion for learning about different cultures and wanted to share this information with others so that there is more understanding in the world about different people and cultures. With all my travels and speaking to other people around the world, I have realize that a lot of people especially in the US know very little about other parts of the world. That is why I decided that I will create some sort of town square where different culture can came together, people can share information about their culture, I love to start by showing some of mine to my amazing readers.
