5 ABC'S Of Culture in Syria
Wheat is the main crop and one of the staple foods. Vegetables, fruits, and dairy products also are eaten. Lamb is popular, but most people cannot afford to eat meat on a regular basis. Islam proscribes the consumption of pork, and other meats must be specially prepared in a method called halal cooking. In middle-class and wealthier homes, meals are like those eaten in other Middle Eastern countries: roast or grilled chicken or lamb with side dishes of rice, chickpeas, yogurt, and vegetables. The common dishes in Syria are hummus, falafel, shish kebabs, and farooj
As in many Arabic countries, religion is an integral part of the culture and daily life. The foundation of Islamic belief is called the Five Pillars.It is speculated, although not certain, that Alawite Muslims do not observe the holy month of Ramadan or make a pilgrimage to Mecca as other Muslims do and celebrate some Christian holidays. The practices of the Druze are also somewhat mysterious. A smaller group known as the Ismailis recognizes a living person, the Aga Khan, as their sacred leader.
Syrians wear a mix of traditional Arab and Western-style clothing. However, casual Western clothes such as jeans, T-shirts, and running shoes are rarely worn. Both men and women cover their legs to at least below the knee. Their arms are covered to below the elbow. Neither men nor women wear shorts. Middle-and upper-class women, especially younger ones, are flashy dressers. They like bright colors, lots of jewelry and make-up, high-heeled shoes, and "big hair." Young men have very short, closely cropped hair and also dress stylishly.
Arabic is the official language of the Syrian Arab Republic and the language spoken by nearly all Syrians. French is the second-most-common language. However, it has started to be rivaled by English. Other languages spoken in Syria are Kurdish, Armenian, Aramaic, Circassian,and French.
The animal in Syria include camels, cheetahs, elephants, sheep, to exotic spiders, camels, antelope, gazelle, deer, rabbits and hare, falcons, eagles, and a variety of lizards, typically larger ones. The animals are treated poorly in Syria. They torture them day to day starving and making the animals live in cages, and they are abusing the animals.
