People Are Revealing The Bizarre Things They Do That Seem Normal In Their Country, But Not In The Rest Of The World (17 Pics)
The more you learn about people, the more you learn about the world. After all, there are so many cultures around the globe—each with something important to teach about life and nature.
So, to broaden his cultural awareness, Nasr, who is known on social media as Nas Alive, asked TikTok users “What is something that’s normal in your country but weird to the rest of the world?”
“Growing up in an immigrant family from Syria, while living in Canada and going to a French school, I was naturally exposed to many languages and cultures,” Nasr told Bored Panda. “So I tend to find myself asking a lot of questions. For example, what’s the origin of phrases like ‘break the ice’ and ‘break a leg’? And why do we knock on wood?” This TikTok was a result of such thoughts.
And it went viral. As of this article, the video has over 2.4 million views and 18.7K comments, many of which are replies to Nasr’s interesting question.
