I celebrated National Saudi Day at an informative cultural event at WKU. Exchange students shared their favorite aspects of Saudi culture, and I learned so much.
Here are six lessons I learned from the experience:
Words look better written in Arabic.
Chocolate chip cookies are a universal delicacy.
Saudis follow the teachings of the Qur’an.
Too much jewelry is never an issue.
Dates have a different meaning in Saudi Arabia than they do in America.
Drinking coffee late at night is acceptable — especially if it’s served from a fancy pitcher.
