Israelis speak and laugh Louder

There’s a joke about Israelis; they would prefer to yell “Hi” to one another from the other side of the street than actually meet with one another. They would sometimes look for you by yelling towards you, but they aren’t trying to be rude. They are just used to higher volumes.

So many references

Israelis watched Israeli comedy shows since we were small children. When we talk to one another, we can speak in references and you might not know what we are talking about. Moreover, when Israeli travelers meet, they will try references and ask about the comedy show.

Where are you from?

Israel is such a small place and Israelis are interested in origins. For most of our lives, we have learned that there is an importance in your past. They will ask you where were you originally from, and have some interesting questions about your past and your family. They do it with each other all the time.
