DID YOU KNOW?...
- Brazilians are very mixed in their ethnicity. Someone with slightly lighter skin might be considered white. Most Brazilians, about 45% of them, have a mixture of Indian, African, and European in their blood lines. Instead of focusing on ethnicity, Brazilians tend to classify people in terms of social class. The very wealthy tend to seclude themselves. The middle class aspires to be part of the wealthier class. The poor concern themselves with family and getting through the day.
- Kissing upon greeting is common, except at work. Men kiss women. Women kiss men. Women kiss women. Man just shake hands with another man, but when they are very good friends, they put the hand on the back at the same time (kind of a semi-hug). Kissing is often done at first when introduced to somebody :"Pleased to meet you" (Muito prazer!). You may find yourself kissing perfect strangers. Oh yes, kisses are usually double , there is exception in some Brazilian states where unmarried women will sometimes kiss each other a third time and whisper the expression "para casar" (a charm to get married). Usually, the lips do not really touch the cheek, but go to the air, and the cheeks of both people barely touch for a second.
- It's common for a Brazilian family to share meals together, so it means that family members come home from work or school for a couple of hours during the day to have lunch together and then rest before leaving again. Lunch is usually the largest meal and considered the most important meal of the day.
- In Brazil, someone may come into your house and stay for hours. Meetings and social gatherings, other than in business settings, tend to be scheduled at times that are subject to change.
- It is very normal in Brazil to live with the parents until getting married, unless you go to study in another city (but still, if you graduate, it is normal to go back to parents' home). And it happens even if you are over 30 years old. A person is not considered to be a loser if still living with the parents, and it is unnatural to live with roommates when you live in the same city as your parents. (sometimes because many families members are very attached to each other and also because some people can't afford living by themselves).
