What Country Do Your Manners Belong To?
by Khadija Leon


How does the saying go again? Manners maketh man? Well, in this case, manners can say a lot about where you're from, how you were raised or where you should move to. The English are known for having impeccable manners, while some other cultures are a lot less gracious. What we're trying to figure out today is what your manners say about you and where you belong. Ready to find out if you could sit with the queen or whether you belong in a cave with some wolves? 

Will your manners say you're from Japan? Are you the kind of person who sticks to the rules no matter what?  Or do your manners hint that you're really from Great Britain? Are you polite enough to dine with the Queen herself? Or do your manners say that you're from America? You know, things aren't as formal in the land of the free and the home of the brave - you don't always have to mind your P's and Q's. Is that you? Or will your manners say that you're from France? Are there certain rules that you must obey, while others are made to be broken?

We know you're excited to find out just where you belong, manners-wise, so don't wait another minute. Get started on our manners quiz right now! Please!
