Introduction

Honduras is a beautiful country with nature at its lap and the natural beauty are enough to charm anybody and its located at the north central part of Central America.
In this work we would learn about the culture of Honduras and the culture of the UnitedStates of America.
The culture of Honduras isn’t as much as different as the united states culture in the united states there live like 1 million or I think that more Hondurans there so that’s a very high population of Hondurans Living there.
Comparing to societies or countries makes to know people how they are different from others and what they too are doing well and what they are doing wrong.Culture
Popular culture in Honduras, as in most countries, is expressed not so much through sophisticated artistic creations, but rather by popular events that draw big crowds. In Honduras, such artistic and cultural events are held on specific days of the year and through special celebrations. They have a special kind of dance and music the Hondurans hold proudly. They have gatherings to singand dance; they call it "punta".
Hondurans celebrate national holidays and special events in the form of carnivals, fairs and parades throughout the year. For instance, in La Ceiba the annual carnival is a week-long celebration with music, exhibitions and special food, culminating in the most popular carnival in the country: "The Carnival of Friendship".
The Feria Juniana (June Fair) of SanPedro Sula includes different musical concerts performed throughout the week. Visitors can also attend sporting events and a variety of exhibitions.
Puerto Cortés celebrates its fair in August with a "Venice" theme which includes parades of gondolas and other boats in the bay, and an evening fireworks display launched from boats.
The culture of the United States is a Western culture, having beenoriginally influenced by European cultures. It has been developing since long before the United States became a country with its own unique social and cultural characteristics such as dialect, music, arts, social habits, cuisine, and folklore. Today, the United States of America is an ethnically and racially diverse country as result of large-scale immigration from many different countries throughoutits history.
The United States culture is very different to Honduran culture because this country has a lot of traditions and there too live a lot of people from other country so they don’t have a culture as Honduras have.

Technology
Americans, by and large, are often fascinated by new technology and new gadgets. There are many within the United States that share the attitude that throughtechnology, many of the evils in the society can be solved. Many of the new technological innovations in the modern world were either first invented in the United States and/or first widely adopted by Americans. Examples include: the light bulb, the airplane, the transistor, nuclear power, the personal computer, video games and online shopping, as well as the development of the Internet.
TheHonduran Academy (founded in 1949), the Honduran Coffee Institute, and the National Agriculture Institute are all located in Tegucigalpa. The José Cecilio Del Valle University (founded in 1978) has engineering and computer science departments, and the National Autonomous University of Honduras (founded in 1847) has faculties of medicine, pharmacy, dentistry, and engineering. The Pan-AmericanAgricultural School (founded in 1942) has students from 20 Latin American countries. The National Museum in Tegucigalpa has natural-history exhibits.
The technology of the united states is kie 10 times better than Honduran culture, they have power plants they are more educated so they can produce new things.
