Part 2, 3 and 5
Some major trends that impact culture in France are, Food and wine are a very big part of culture in France, much bigger than in Canada. Bread is a common thing to have with almost every meal along with cheese being very popular also. Generally in France portions are smaller than you would see in many other places and they usually eat much slower. Along with food, art and fashion are also major trends that affect culture in France. Paris, which is the capital of france is filled with many high end fashion company’s, and just in general people are said to have better “fashion sense” typical outfits you would see in Paris include nice dresses, suits, long coats, scarves, and berets. Similar to fashion and food art is a major trend that impacts the culture of France and it is everywhere. Many world famous artists like Pablo Piccaso and Vincent Van Gogh found inspiration in Paris to create world famous pieces of art. Also in Paris is one of the worlds largest art museums, the Louvre Museum which contains the Mona Lisa and Venus de Milo.
Things such as communication and transportation affect Frances culture because if France creates a new video game system and it gets noticed all around the world, France will use transportation to ship the video game system to other country such as Canada, America, or even places like Australia. France can also use communication such as social media websites such as face book or twitter to advertise vacations in to bring in tourists.
France has influenced our Atlantic Canadian culture in many ways, France created the bicycle which was made in Paris in 1818 and now in Atlantic Canada it is something that almost everyone has. Along with the bicycle France also created the first storage battery which was invented in 1859 by Gaston Plante and is now seen in almost every household in Atlantic Canada. France did not only bring great inventions to Atlantic Canada, they also brought fantastic foods, such as Truffles, French toast, crepes and many more! And finally a major thing that you not only see in Atlantic Canada now but all around the world is parkour which was created in France and it is basically jumping climbing and running usually around a city at a fast pace
