Why do people of different regions do things differently than we do? This question is often asked when a person might come into contact with traditions and cultures that differ from their own, or the practice of something is not widely shared or understood. If you are intending to travel to a different region of America or to a location overseas, then understanding the cultures around you will make a world of difference.
