Great Britain is a country of traditions
It is no secret that every nation has its own traditions and customs. No two cultures are the same in the world.
In addition to the real facts, there are also erroneous stereotypes about a particular country, which are sometimes quite funny or even absurd. Since English is our everything, let's learn more about the culture, traditions and myths of England.
The English are a unique people, with a historically established character. English traditions
and customs are known
all over the world.
The English do not flaunt their emotions to the first comer.
They can give the impression
of a reserved and even slightly repulsive person.
However, this is just a wrapper. The English are very polite, which is why they are not in a hurry
to express their emotions immediately.
Often, even if they disagree with you,
they will say politely "Oh, I'm afraid it's impossible".
An Englishman will never say a sharp
"No, you're wrong". In any case, they try
to observe politeness and common sense.
You should always think logically
if you are dealing
with a person from this country.
For example, if he knows that
you are not 100%
honest with him in business, he will not immediately throw out the negative on you.
In this case, an Englishman with a polite smile can break off the partnership with you.
The English always keep themselves in hand
and behave with dignity.
English traditions are the perfect
upbringing and manners.
The English are very disciplined and always follow
the accepted rules.
They are a very positive people. Family is a cultural asset in
the UK, they love to spend time
at home with their family.
An evening with the family is
the best entertainment
for an Englishman.
In a traditional English home, there are always
plenty of family photos.
Food traditions in England
As for food, the traditions of England, as well as representatives of any other countries have their own habits, signature dishes and features.
The main meal of the English
Often, it's bacon, scrambled eggs, toast, and a cup of tea or coffee.
The British are not fans
of variety in food,
so they can easily eat the same thing
for breakfast every day.
Tea is something that really stands out
in the English food culture.
English traditions imply
a lot of tea. By the way, it is believed
that the British invented tea with milk
to change the taste characteristics of tea.
In part, this is true, but mainly, milk was added to the tea so that the drink would cool and the porcelain would not crack.
5 o'clock tea is a world-famous expression that came to us originally from England.
Usually, it is drunk in the interval
from 16: 00 to 18: 00 with small sandwiches mixed in. Tea for the British is not just
a drink, it is a whole ritual.
The culture of England is not represented without tea. Perhaps, in terms of tea drinking,
the British should even compete
with the Chinese.
Lunch — the afternoon meal. Most often, lunch is served with vegetables
and something meat or fish.
A traditional British dessert that is recognized by UK culture is apple pie
or milk pudding,
which is served hot.
When the family gathers at the Sunday table, the main dishes are served: lamb tenderloin, vegetables, pudding.
The dinner is called "supper".
In its components, it is very similar to lunch.
Light snacks, nothing too heavy or harmful.
"Fish and chips" is
a traditional treat that you can often buy during football matches.
St. Patrick's Day is a cultural and religious holiday, celebrated annually on March seventeen - the day the patron saint of Ireland, St. Patrick, died. According to legend, St. Patrick used a shamrock to clarify the Holy Trinity to Irish pagans.
Today, a clover leaf, the image of the saint and green color have become symbols of the holiday along with the image of leprechaun, the brightest character of Irish folklore.
Festivals, parades and fairs committed to Irish culture are held throughout the country.
St. George's Day
St. George is the patron saint
of England: according to biblical legend,
he boldly killed the dragon and saved
the princess. Over the centuries of the existence of the legend, he became the hero of many works of art, folklore texts around the world. On April twenty-three, people lift the national flag of England - the ruddy cross of St. George on a white background, pin ruddy roses symbolizing England to their clothes, markets open
in the central squares of cities. This isn't exclusively a national holiday, but it's perceived by many English as one of the most necessary
for the country.
of the English in public life are also unshakable.
In London's Hyde Park,
in the "speaker's corner", anyone can give a speech or a sermon.
This area is guarded
by police officers,
so that the speaker won't be beaten if his speech doesn't please
As you know, fashion
in clothing changes at lightning speed, but not for the British. They're more conservative than anyone. In fashion, a strict, elegant English fashion is always relevant, the attributes
of which are the simplicity
of the cut, the absence
of any unnecessary and tiny details.
Moreover, even in the mid-20th century, you could
in the business districts
of London, who came out, whetherthe nineteenth century: a black jacket, narrow striped trors, a high white collar, a bowler hat on his head and always in the hands of a black umbrella.
Moreover, medieval clothing has survived, which is worn on special occasions,

The tradition of opening Parliament sessions after the holidays Ancient ceremonies also accompany
the annual opening of parliament sessions after the holidays.
The procession in medieval costumes goes around the basements of the buildings,
after which it reports to the head
of the parliament that "number conspirators have been found". This rite originated in one thousand six hundred-fifth, when Guy Fawkes and like-minded people wanted to explode parliament.
Since then, "Guy Fawkes Day" - November five is celebrated
as a fun holiday.
Enormous bonfires are lit every, in which
an effigy of Guy Fawkes is burned.
Gardening in the culture of the British This is an integral portion
of the life of a true Brit.
They invest a lot of soul and energy
in their favorite hobby, which is why the territories close their homes are always well-groomed and pleasing
to the eye.
The British allow special care
not only to the garden,
but also to pets.
The English are pleased
of how they get care of our younger brothers and don't waver
to spoil them with fashionable
attire or a haircut.
Saturday of the English
This day of the Englishman looks the same as the Saturday
of the average representative
of any country. Domestic chores, a gym, a meeting with a native-a must've for the British.
However, the English aren’t
as boring as they may seem
at first glance.
In the evenings, they're avid party-goers. Parties, dances, theaters, and movies are the favorite pastimes of youthful people
After reading all the stereotypes,
I remember the good phrase
"Don't judge a book by it's cover".
No need to judge people by the cover,
all nations are unique,
and all people are unique.
The culture of the English is also significantly different from other countries.
The customs and traditions of the English are unique and unique.
There are always exceptions
to the rules and stereotypes. Learn more about the culture of other countries, adopt their interesting traditions and develop, we hope that the traditional customs of Great Britain will inspire you to conquer new heights. Have a great day!
