"It is important to respect Georgia’s deep-rooted Christian traditions. Avoid using profane or offensive language, and refrain from public displays of affection. Showing respect for religious days, such as Good Friday, is also important; it is customary to dress conservatively and to abstain from activities such as gambling or drinking. It is also important to show respect for the elderly members of society; for example, it is considered polite to stand up when an elderly person enters the room. Additionally, speaking too loudly, especially in public places, is frowned upon," said a member in Georgia Rep.
