Bangladesh has its own culture and tradition. Bangladeshi culture reflects the behavior of individuals, their dresses, occasions, languages, livelihood, festivals, etc.
People of Bangladesh are greatly influenced by the religious faith. The prime religions are Islam, Hinduism, Christianity and Buddhism. Though each religion has different cultures and festivals, people live in peace and harmony with each other. A strong brotherhood prevails among them.
Their way of living , food habit , clothes , values, etc. are almost same though they belong to different religions, regions and have different dialects. Every occasion is celebrated with the participation of each and every religious people.
Bangladesh has a golden history. We are proud of 21st February (International Mother Language day), 26th March (Independence day), 16th December (Victory day), Pahela Baishakh (First day of Bengali New year) etc.
People celebrate some of these days with due respect and solemnity, and some other with joy and festivity. Bangladeshi culture and traditions are entirely reflected in these days.
Bangladeshi people have the strong tradition of food. Rice is the staple food here. They usually take rice three times in a day with delicious dishes and curry. Common Bangladeshi men wear lungi and women wear saree.
Different types of arts and crafts are seen in Bangladesh. Weaving, pottery, terracotta, Nakshi Kantha etc. are traditional in Bangladesh.
Bangladeshi culture is enriched, but now the cultures of foreign countries are intruding into our culture. So, we should be careful and try to uphold our own culture to the world.
