FOLK/ POPULAR CULTURE AND AGRICULTURE
Folk/ Popular Culture and Agriculture
A habit is an act that individuals perform repetitively. For example, an individual could have an everyday routine of getting out of bed getting dressed then going to school. Custom, on the other hand, is an act that a group of people performs repetitively and in this case, a group of people is in the same routine.
Folk culture could have many or even unknown origins among isolated groups of people. Its diffusion is slow and only happens through migration, and the distribution is affected by physical environment factors. An example is that the origin of soccer in folk culture is not known. Popular culture, on the other hand, has its origin traceable to a place or a person, and usually, they can be traced to countries around the world. It also diffuses very fast around the earth due to economic development.
Globalization has an impact on the relationship between popular and folk culture. It has been able to transform folk culture to popular culture. It has therefore made popular culture more dominant leading to the loss of traditional values of the societies that initially used folk culture.
