    こんにちは!

    本日のessayは"customs from other countries"について。

    身の回りに数え切れないほどありますが、日本の中で馴染んでいくに連れて
    また独自の形態に変化していく面白さがあると思います。

    それでは、早速essayを紹介させていただきます!



    There are many wonderful customs in other countries. I especially like two customs.

    One is in America. There are many days, to spend time with family or in the neighborhood. On Christmas, many Americans spend time with their family. I’m sure, the custom improves Americans perspective that spending time with family is important and special. In Japan, some people spend time with their girlfriend (boyfriend). And, some people spend time with their friends.

    In America, on Halloween night, many children ask people in their neighborhood for some candies. The neighborhood prepares some candies to give to children. This is a very heartfelt custom, which contributes to building good relation with people in the neighborhood.

    In Japan, as a recent trend, many interesting events and parties attract young people. Young people enjoy dressing up in unique costumes. I’ve seen such people in Hiroshima on the main street. I don’t like such people because they speak loudly and often worry people around them.

    The other custom I like is in Spain. The custom is called a “Siesta” which is to take a nap. I’m sure to take an adequate nap is good because I can refresh my mind. Taking a nap has scientifically proven health benefits.
    However, the unemployment rate has been increasing, and the rate of economic growth has been decreasing in Spain. The Spanish government proposed to reduce the time to take a nap officially. It’s interesting to know whether or not those measures are effective for Spain’s economic growth.

    The two customs you mentioned in your essay were good examples. I especially like the idea of the siesta and even in Japan we need to take short breaks to re-energize ourselves. I also like the German custom of privacy and punctuality but also to strive to do one’s best.

    In New Zealand, greetings are usually casual and friendly. We are also an egalitarian society so we do not have a class system. Wealth and social status are not so important to us but we like to praise achievements.
