How We Greet One Another

Hello/Kindest Regards/Shalom/Salaam/Namaste/Howdy/Peace to All Here!

(I know that is not an exhaustive list of greetings by any means!)

I thought about posting this thread in the Lounge, but since I think it will necessarily involve some "religious" conversation (at least, I hope it does), I have put it here.

I would love to examine the significance (religious or not) of different greetings we use here in CR. I think it would be helpful and educational and I suspect there will be some humor involved, as well.

Anyone interested?


In Fiji, the Hindu populous greet one another with, 'Ram, Ram' rather than 'Namaste' as they do in India.
