    Tea is in the late afternoon. Although when I was growing up it was sometimes used to mean dinner as well.

Maybe it's the stereotypical New Yorker, who is often thought as being Italian or Jewish American, that gives this impression. But despite how uniquely American people in the USA think they are compared to the UK or Canada and Australia, they were still founding by the British and a former British colony. American law is still based on the British system, it's just no longer influenced by it. In the greater parts of the United States, I still see the British demand for politeness and respectful interaction, even if they might not necessarily feel that way. Some might say that's being fake, but others might urge against acting like an asshole if you feel like an asshole. If you ask an American for directions, in most cases they'll be more than happy to give them to you. That's opposed to responding with, "you've got map, figure it out yourself," or "I already told you, so leave me alone idiot". It's the idea if you act a certain way, you'll probably also expect it from others.

    But Americans can also have an ethnocentric point of view. If parts of the world aren't Americans, then they wish they were. And Americans can walk into any country, and demand of the countries citizens in standard American English, what it is they require. Some countries see this as arrogant that American supremacy should dictate that they should be able to speak the leader of the world's language.

    British Isles, Canada and New Zealand are relatively social democratic and collectivist (even after 1980s), while USA and Australia are more capitalist and individualistic.

    In Northern England what everyone calls lunch, we call dinner.

    What everyone calls dinner, we call tea.

    British and Australian/NZ cultures are very similar.

    Canadian and American cultures are more similar to each other.

    Ultimately our cultures are moving closer togther because of the internet. Americans watch all our top TV shows and we watch all of theirs.

    The biggest difference is with sport. Canadians play ice hockey, Americans have all their sports and we play football, cricket and rugby the most. Australians are more fond of rugby and cricket than football; they also have Aussie rules football. New Zealand is 100% rugby.

    American are more risk takers. Canadians avoid risks. Canada has of culture of conservatism and risk aversion. Americans have a great entrepreneurial spirit which Canadians lack. Government is the largest employer in Canada and 75% of the companies in Canada are American.

    Research and development in Information Technology in Canada lags far behind America. That's why there are 500,000 Canadians working and living in Silicon Valley, California, USA.

    Canada is officially a bilingual country.

    Yea, I remember this. We had neighbors long back, who were from NZ. All us children would be playing outside, and their mom would come in, time for tea. And they would say bye and leave. I used to be damn confused..."tea so late". It used to be dinner time.

    The USA had its roots in religious extremist groups like the Puritans, Dissenters, Covenenters, Redemptionists and various other far flung protestant groups who felt that seventeenth century England was too liberal (the Puritans were against having plays, any form of showbiz and government interference in religious matters)------thick headed, very religious, conservative

    Canada's English speaking founders were part of this group, the United Empire Loyalists. The difference with them is that when the revolutionary war broke out they were either loyal to Great Britain or were against the idea of open conflict and were marginalized in the colonies so they fled north to start a new life. They also never advocated slavery (real slavery, not indentured servitude) and formed better relations with the Natives (see the Butlers Rangers and their involvement with the Iroquious, Joseph Brant etc)------so in conclusion, Canadians took with them some of that Puritan style spirit in everyday life, but were more socially liberal and against the idea of violent conflict and less religious

    Australians and Kiwis--not my area of expertise at all, but they seem much more liberal, especially in regards to sex based on what I've read and heard. they don't seem to have a major religious basis like the USA and Canada
