Mead (1955) said that culture “is an abstraction of the body of learned behaviour which a group of people who share the same tradition transmit entire to their children, and, in part, to adult immigrants who become members of the society.”
- "[t]he arts, customs, and habits that characterize a particular society or nation",
- "[t]he beliefs, values, behaviour and material objects that constitute a people's way of life",
- "[a]ny knowledge passed from one generation to the next, not necessarily with respect to human beings", or
- "[t]he language and peculiarities of a geographical location"
is called a culture.
"A culture is the combination of the language that you speak and the geographical location you belong to. It also includes the way you represent dates, times and currencies."
