Family History

Family History

I am a white Caucasian with a colorful family background . My family originated from different parts of the world . My mother is of Irish descent while my father , German descent . Because of their different cultures , I am introduced with a lot of cultures from both sides , which certainly played a great part in the formation of my character

As far as I can remember , both of my parents raised me to recognize both cultures which they came from . From my German blood , I became very appreciative of artistic works like

paintings , sculptures and more . At one point in my life , I was very to Classical music , which has been a part of a German lifestyle ever since the time of great composers like Bach and Beethoven . From my Irish side , I inherited the love for festivities . I remember how my family treated every holiday as a very special occasion which should involve every member of the family . This is what has brought us closer to each other as far as I know

This is because our family was able to blend in to the popular culture . Despite the differences in my family 's origins , we were able to unite and become a single entity which is the family . We were able to adopt the different lifestyles in the place we live in today . We don 't consider ourselves different from other people and despite this my family still has our cultural values intact . Pluralism on the other hand , shows that there are different cultures evident in a certain society , which is not applicable in our case ADDIN EN .CITE Reynolds2H .
