Seems like it from what I've seen around my area, the older ones that don't use drugs or hang with gangs that is.

As society modernizes the family becomes more compact. If you had lived 200 years ago you would have noticed very little difference. Even today in rural areas the culture is closer to what you describe as "Mexican"...

I can kinda see that, I always wonder if Catholicism had to with it.

Best Answer

Well there is a longer term difference between Northern European cultures and Southern Mediterranean cultures. Northern Europeans are generally more cautious, conservative and less expressive then Southern Europeans. Mexican Culture is a mix between Spanish and native culture. Spanish is Southern European culture.

That is exactly what I was thinking. Northern European especial western parts are different from Southern western Europeans. I had a priest to come my parents house and he was kissing everybody's hand and he was like, this was a old custom in most Latin American countries.Which of course were Part of Spain.

Best Answer

Yes. As for catholisim i do not think that has anything to do with it. Many Northern Europeans in America are of Irish decent and are catholic but they are not as expressive or like that priest you described. You will not see Irish catholic priests kissing everybody hands. In fact northern Europeans would probably be offended by that if it happened.
