I just wanted to ask people here whether they wear shoes while at home? I walked into a friends house for the first time, and when I tried to take off my shoes, my other friend (also visiting for the first time) said, "Hey man, she's not asian. We don't need to take our shoes off." He was right....we didn't have to take off our shoes!! I thought it made sense since I believe all Chinese people take off their shoes before walking into their house, and he knows how things work in Australia better than I do, but then I thought about "how we roll" in Canada. In Canada, I think everyone takes their shoes off before walking into their house. Well, most people do. It must have something to do with dragging snow into the house during winter. I think most Canadians just adopt that habit in the summer as well. I'm sure Australians don't have this problem with precipitation. Anyway, is this a "white" and "asian" thing, a Canadian vs Australia thing, or just a difference you see between different households?
