In the Chinese culture religion in really important. They don't write or read left to write, instead they write right to left and up and down. Martial arts is also popular. A way Chinese culture is similar to American culture is that both cultures celebrate New Years, but the Chinese New Year is later than the
American New Year, and both cultures appreciate arts.

One thing that my family and I do Family movie night.We go and get lots of movie and get snacks and then we go and watch all the movies. The second thing that we do as a family is that go to church every Sunday and Wednesday.The third thing that we do as a family is always have Sunday dinners. I always help my Mom cook Pasta and clean when we are done eating. The last thing that we do as a family is every holiday we sometimes make food for the homeless.

One thing that is that almost all the Americans share is the right of freedom.And that every one should have the right of a good education.These are some thing that almost all Americans share in common.
