Culture and Etiquette

Soccer is the national past-time, with Ghana's national team considered one of the best on the continent.

Community is the foundation of a happy life. Friends and family visit unannounced, bringing small gifts such as food or juice.

Most Ghanaians practice Christianity; Sunday is an important day whether you go to church, visit family, or rest. Those who don't practice Christianity are likely to practice Islam or traditional religions.

It's rude to leave a guest on their own. The host is expected to make sure they arrive home safe, whether that be taking them home, ordering a taxi, walking them to their car, or waiting at the bus stop with them.
