8: Etiquette and Customs | * A handshake, a welcoming smile, and direct eye contact is a common way of greeting. * At a first glance, Bahamian's appear standoffish, even though they are the most warm and hospitable people of the Caribbean islands.

9: * Bahamians use surnames instead of the person's real name even if they are really good friends. * Inexpensive gifts are given to good friends during the holidays. * If you are invited to a Bahamian's house, the first person that eats is the hostess, and then all of the guests begin to eat. It is considered a sign of respect.
