Cultural: Two very small things
Since I'm an American but live in Poland, sometimes big things can be different - ways of thinking, monolithic society, etc. Sometimes, however, it's the small things that you notice.
Let's take two things today.
1. Polish people almost universally eat coffee cake with a spoon, not a fork.
2. When Polish kids first learn to count, they start with their thumb.
They use their fingers like this:
When my kids first showed this to me, it struck me as a bit humorous.
Typically Americans start counting with their first finger - their pointer finger.
And that's all. These are surely very small things that really aren't important in the big picture of life - but different nonetheless!
I hope this short little post helps you realize that these tiny differences are what helps us all BE different. We can think differently and have different cultures, but we are still all "just people" with hearts and souls, emotions and intellect. Our differences definitely keep life interesting!
Have a great day wherever this finds you reading!
