Culture – whatever that is?

Culture. It tends to be a word that is used a lot for so many different things.

To some it means opera, the arts, fine dining or over-priced wines. To others it may be the custom of using street cafés.

Most people seem to think it is something that you can put a price tag on.

For me I see it more about a whole way of life. The complete package. Whatever that package may be. It is about who you are, where you come from, what you do.

Everyone has a culture about them. I have always thought it a nonsense when some is referred to as “uncultured“. What is being referred to their is merely someone has a different culture to the person making the comment.

Having survive Black Friday, Silly Saturday, Cyber Monday & Tuesday, all imported from US retailers to the UK, one particular aspect of the US culture we really could do with bringing into the UK is “Pay It Forward”.

Take a look at the video below.

Wouldn’t it be great if that happened in every single town across the UK, every single day? Now that’s a culture you can respect!
