National traditions of Luxemburg. Habits, mentality and the way of living

Luxembourg is a very calm country. Locals do not like excessive noise and lead a calm, measured life. It may seem that they are emotionally stingy and reserved, but this behavior is peculiar to the national character. In the country three official languages are spoken: Luxembourgish; which is a special dialect of German with a mixture of words from French, German and French. Nevertheless, the locals communicate with each other precisely in Luxembourgish. This language is similar to German only by the recognizable sound of a group of Germanic languages. Luxembourgers lead a rather closed life. They do not like to go out into the streets or "into the light" after they return home from work.
In Luxembourg, as in the Benelux countries, there is a mild climate with warm winter and a cool summer. During winter, temperatures rarely fall below …

In Luxembourg, it is customary to get up early and go to bed early, and therefore disturbing each other in the evenings by calls is considered bad and improper. At the same time, Luxembourgers, when dealing with other people, especially unfamiliar ones, behave extremely restrained and properly, without showing their emotions or demonstrating their true attitude to the person. They are always ready to help, not only close friends or relatives, but also tourists asking for directions and in search of local attractions. Luxembourgers are very good-natured people. However, due to their equanimity and composure, they may appear detached and indifferent. They do not like noisy parties and big companies. They prefer a modest family vacation.
97% of the population of Luxembourg is Catholics. The country is a true pillar of the Catholic faith throughout Europe. Locals are religious enough that they regularly go to church. At the same time, Luxembourgers are extremely tolerant to representatives of other faiths and worldviews. Another important aspect of Luxembourg's life is its national culture. Despite the fact that the country is very small and has been deprived of its independent status for a long time, local people value their national culture and are sincerely proud of it. Luxembourgers honor their traditions in a wide variety of fields: they continue to pass on their historical recipes for preparing national dishes, hold music holidays and festivals, and raffle off grants and award prizes.

The music in Luxembourg is treated with special attention and respect. Virtually every local district has its own choir and orchestra playing traditional musical instruments. Many local musicians sing in the national language, using folk motifs. Great influence on local music was rendered by neighboring Germany. In some melodies, one can hear classical German features. In large cities, music festivals are held annually, which are designed to encourage musical culture. Performances of musicians of different genres and directions take place at them. In addition to music, every cultural activity is actively encouraged in the country. Authorities award monetary bonuses for achievements in science and literature.
Cathedral to the Blessed Virgin Cultural events are the most discussed topics among locals. They like to talk about classical music, art, literature and sports. Luxembourgers vividly characterize one of the country's mottoes "to be who you are." They really do not aspire to do great things but just enjoy life in their calm and comfortable country. They are extremely careful, attentive and accurate in their work, which makes them excellent employees. Like the Germans, they are used to doing their job qualitatively, so that they do not have to redo it or fix mistakes. The country has an incredibly low level of crime. Even in the dark, it is extremely safe.

Another important feature of the mentality of locals is the dislike for innovations. They are very wary of everything that can change their settled life. Even novelties of technology are perceived by them with caution. They are much more comfortable to use outdated, but familiar objects. For this reason, Luxembourg has never participated in serious battles. The country hosts a large number of holidays and festivals. Luxembourgers like this kind of recreation. The birthday of the Grand Duke is also celebrated on a grand scale. The locals are very fond of the ruling monarch and his family.
