Being a Latino means that at family parties you have to greet everyone and by everyone, I do mean EVERYONE. This is a rule that has been in my family for as long as a remember, you go up to your close family(family you are extremely close to) by giving them hugs and saying hello. Your elders, grandma and aunts, you hug, give a peck on the cheek and chat for a while. For my uncles, it is mostly a handshake, a nod of acknowledgment or you just chat and joke around for a while. For those people you do not know at the party you still have to say hello or say good afternoon to them. If anyone from my family sees that you do not do that they make sure you. If anyone at the get together sees someone eating alone or is just isolating themselves, family members tend to pry and push you to mingle. Communication and the way you portray how you communicate with others is extremely important at my family parties or my family members will hold it against you.
