Some russian habits and traits of charcther which make them completely different from the Americans.
And never showing up to someone’s house without a gift in hand
Dressing up to go to the store
Sitting down at the table for a meal and staying there for hours
Meeting complete strangers and then becoming friends with them immediately
Living with their parents
Preparing way more food than is necessary for when friends come over
Always keeping your bags
Constantly rewatching old Soviet cartoons
Celebrating New Year’s more enthusiastically than Christmas
Sitting down for a minute before heading on a trip
Making really long and complicated toasts.
Telling anecdotes as often as possible.
Congratulating one another on getting out of a shower or sauna
Answering “how are you?” honestly and fully
Not smiling at strangers
Calling all females “girl”
