and users of culture itself. Humans live because of culture, while culture will continue to live
and develop when people want to preserve culture and not destroy it.

Definition of Culture
Culture is inherent and a characteristic in a country, where culture is also a wealth owned by
a country. a unique culture has become its own pride which is able to attract tourists to get to
know the culture in the country. culture should be preserved so as not to disappear, because
culture has actually existed and is generally inherited from time immemorial.
The Center for Advance Research on Language Acquisition goes a step further, defining
culture as shared patterns of behaviors and interactions, cognitive constructs and
understanding that are learned by socialization. Thus, it can be seen as the growth of a group
identity fostered by social patterns unique to the group.

"Culture encompasses religion, food, what we wear, how we wear it, our language, marriage,
music, what we believe is right or wrong, how we sit at the table, how we greet visitors, how
we behave with loved ones, and a million other things," Cristina De Rossi, an anthropologist
at Barnet and Southgate College in London, told Live Science.

The word "culture" derives from a French term, which in turn derives from the Latin
"colere," which means to tend to the earth and grow, or cultivation and nurture. "It shares its
etymology with a number of other words related to actively fostering growth," De Rossi said.

Culture is a result of human activity and inner creation such as belief, art, and customs
between all human knowledge as social beings that are used to understand the environment and
its experiences and which guide its behavior. As we know, in a country must have various kinds
or types of culture, such as the culture of eating at the dinner table, the culture of dancing,
queuing, etcetera.

Queuing culture is something that must be planted early on, because almost everything
requires queuing. Most people want to be at the forefront, regardless of others. However, even
though we are in an urgent situation we must remain in line to maintain order. If we don't queue
it feels like we are breaking the rules in the community.

The culture of queuing is very simple, but this is very difficult to apply in everyday life.
Queuing is an activity where everyone waits in the order, to get the service according to the
procedures and rules. The attitude in queuing is an attitude where everyone has a self-awareness
to respect each other who have waited or come first, in order to maintain order and security.

From Wikipedia Culture is the social behavior and norms found in human societies.
Culture is considered a central concept in anthropology, encompassing the range of
phenomena that are transmitted through social learning in human societies. Cultural
universals are found in all human societies; these include expressive forms
like art, music, dance, ritual, religion, and technologies like tool usage, cooking,shelter,
and clothing. In the humanities, one sense of culture as an attribute of the individual has
been the degree to which they have cultivated a particular level of sophistication in the arts,
sciences, education, or manners.
One of the culture is the way people eating or we call eating habits that is The
term eating habits (or food habits ) refers to why and how people eat, which foods they eat,
and with whom they eat, as well as the ways people obtain, store, use, and discard food.
Individual, social, cultural, religious, economic, environmental, and political factors all
influence people's eating habits. Because of all that factor eating habits in some countries
has the differences. Save for example in Indonesia and America. We know that in indonesia
there are several American restaurant food which stand in mall or big store competing with
Indonesian restaurant. From two kind of that restaurant we can see so many differences of
menu or facilitate in eating food. So that’s why I would like to know other differences of
eating habits in Indonesia and America depends of other aspect.
Culture is a habit that we usually find in certain groups. Country differences, religion, ethnicity,
including items that make different cultures. America and Indonesia, for example, are two
countries that have quite different cultural differences. Indonesia, which is an Asian society, is
famous for its politeness, and America, which is a western country which is also world-famous
for its freedom. There are many differences that we can find from these two countries in culture.
Like numbers in terms of education, government, transportation and others. But now I want to
explain the custom of cultural habits of difference between America and Indonesia. Eating habits
are interesting topics and certainly we often find in everyday life. Because so many kinds of
provisions in terms of eating are different between our regions of Indonesia and America.Aimus
