Cultures of Chicago

On the subject of globalism and American myths, cities seem to intersect with these concepts. Our history, our myths from other cultures and the customs they brought to American when immigrating here make up the culture of America. From the Irish, we get Halloween, from Italians and European Catholics we get traditions like Easter and Christmas, from Jewish Europeans we have Passover and Hanukah, and from Africa, we have kwanza. With the mixing of Irish bluegrass with African American musicians, we got blues, then rock and roll. Our music and the myths we depict in movies all derive from the development of globalism in our oldest cities. Looking at New York, Los Angeles, or Chicago you can find the origins of our holidays, the multiculturalism of our food, the mixing of peoples into a globalized community, all can be found in these major cities that have been the entry port for the majority of families that would come to make up the people of America.
