Lifestyle in Britain

 Q:        
Lifestyle in Britain by Cristina Nuta -

One of the standing characteristics of English life is self-discipline. One can notice few noisy attitudes in the street. Generally, people are polite and always want to please. On the other hand, they do not like to show their emotions even in dangerous situations. Imagine the scene! Some Englishmen, walking in a forest, are caught by a violent storm which pulls the roots of several fur-trees out of the ground. Anybody would be anxious to run away. The Englishmen would try to hide their emotions. Not a trace of fear could be seen in their appearance. Only their complexion would be a little paler. Moreover, the Englishman prefers his own house to a flat in a block. The house is usually of small height and has a small garden in front, which gives it a hospitable aspect .

One often hears of the Englishman's 'reserve'; how he likes to 'keep himself to himself'; and how on a long railway journey, with four Englishmen in the carriage, often there won't be a word spoken during the whole journey. The Englishman thinks it is ill-mannered to ask personal questions. That wouldn't be the case in America. In the short ride between the boat on which you arrived in New York and the hotel to which you are being driven, they taxi driver will have told you about himself, his wife and his family and probably the towns of England he has visited, if so.

The Englishman prizes privacy, more than sociability. The Englishman's suburban house has a little garden with a hedge or a fence all around to shut him off from his neighbours-'The Englishman's house is his castle'.

Finally, we have to make reference to the most distinctive feature of the Scottish people: the Scottish dress. Scotland is probably best-known to the world through its traditional costume, the kilt. This short pleated skirt is worn by men. It was very suitable for going through wet, moorland country. Each part of the Highlands was then under a Chief and formed a tribe with distinctive names, beginning with Mac (meaning 'son'). The kilt worn by each clan was made up of a special pattern, intricately woven. This colourful cloth is called tartan and is peculiar to Scotland. This is true also of the national beverage, whisky (from Gaelic usage, meaning water).
