We can wonder what is culture exactly? Culture is that invisible bond, which ties the people of a community together. It is defined as the shared patterns of behaviors and interactions, cognitive constructs, and affective understanding that is learned through a process of socialization. These shared patterns identify the members of a culture group while also distinguishing those of another group. Culture shapes the personality of a community. The language that a community speaks, the art forms it hosts, its staple food, its customs, traditions and festivities comprise the community's culture.
