National traditions of Germany

In Germany, it is customary to go to bed early and wake up early. Children begin going for sleep after 7pm. Calling each other after 8pm is considered the sheer tactlessness. However, you can call a German at 7 am, as the locals almost never sleep at this time. Still, this rule does not apply to young people; they can spend time at parties and in clubs all night long.
