Haiti Culture

Haitian Familys: Urban  family's might have three or four children when rural family's have ten or more. Adult children are expected to live with their parents until marriage. Married couples usually live near their familys, this is especially true on the country side.

Haitian Food: People in Haiti eat 3 meals a day (If they can afford it) Family members often wait for the mother of the house to eat before anyone else and Sunday dinners are reserved for family.

Haitian Holidays: Haitians celebrate the 'Day Of  The Dead'  

In Haiti 'The Day Of The Dead' is a mix between Christianity ( or catholicism)  and Voodoo

Haitian Religion:  80% of Haitians are Catholic,  about half of Haitians also practice voodoo

The culture of Haiti is an eclectic mix of African, and European elements due to the French colonization of Haiti, as is evidenced in the Haitian language, music, and religion.
