On this breezy October morn, I walk
in the swift shadows of cloud-cursing rooks,
watching the world wake on the horizon.
Leo Yankevich
All houses wherein men have lived and died
Are haunted houses. Through the open doors
The harmless phantoms on their errands glide,
With feet that make no sound upon the floors.

We meet them at the doorway, on the stair,
Along the passages they come and go,
Impalpable impressions on the air,
A sense of something moving to and fro.

    there is no one in our society who is not ethnocentric to some degree , no matter how liberal and open-minded he or she might claim to be. people will always find some aspect of another culture distasteful,be it practices ,a way of treating or relatives, or simply a food that they cannot manage to get down with a smile. :o

    As for practices - it simply means some aspects of customs / traditions in a country. Don't confuse it with the verb "to practise".

    I would question this:
    -" a way of treating or relatives,"
    ... it makes no sense.
