Each country has its own lifestyle and culture, and usually family system totally depends upon it. Pakistan is a patriarchal society underpinned by strong family ties where the joint family system still prevails. It is usually consistent with parents, kids and grandparents living together as a single family. In addition, the earning head of the family plays a vital role in maintaining the economy and nourishment of the family. Additionally the dress forms an important part of the culture. The national dress of the Pakistan is shalwar qameez for both men and women, which consists of a long, loose fitting tunic with trousers baggy enough to not to see the shape of their legs. However the features and characteristics of these shalwar kameez vary according to the region. Hence regional culture has predominant effect on the dress choice of the population.
Furthermore because at least 95 percent of the Pakistani population is Muslim, there are two food customs that are followed almost universally. One is that Muslims do not eat pork (therefore beef, chicken, lamb, and fish are the basic foods), and the other is that during the month of Ramadan, fasting is a daily activity. Spices and curry are an essential part of any Pakistani recipe while Green tea is the typical drink served at all meals. Other aspects of the rich Pakistani culture include the religious festivals celebration including Eid ul-Fitr, Eid ul-Adha, Ramadan, Chand raat , Jashn-e-Baharan and so on.
Moreover the variety of Pakistani music ranges from diverse provincial folk music and traditional styles such as Qawwali and Ghazal Gayaki to modern forms fusing traditional and Western music, such as the synchronization of Qawwali and Western music by the world-renowned Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan. Additionally the national sport of Pakistan is hockey which is traditionally had been played almost exclusively in the western province of Baluchistan, but the cricket is the most popular sport in Pakistan. There are many games played in Pakistan which reflected cultural identity.
