If you are a proud Lithuanian (which let’s face it, you probably are), it’s only when you move away from home that you realise how Lithuanian you actually are.
From the foods you eat to the sports you watch, its only when you leave that you realise how much your home country actually influences you as a person.
That’s why Ding is working with reliable operators such as Tele2 to make sure staying in touch is simple.
Here’s three ways you know you are from Lithuania:
You truly believe Lithuanian food is the best in the world
Because let’s face it, it is absolutely delicious.
From smoked bacon to pickled gherkins, potato dumpling with meat to dark garlic bread, you just can’t understand why your national cuisine hasn’t been exported to all corners of the globe.
It’s just oh-so-comforting.
Basketball is everything
Thousands of Lithuanians are willing to travel far and wide to support the national basketball team.
But basketball is not just a sport to many Lithuanians, it means so much more.
A lot of this national pride and support for this sport stems from the 1992 Barcelona Olympics when Lithuania won gold.
Having been occupied by the Soviet Union since the Second World War, this event came just two short years after Lithuania declared itself a republic making this win mean so much more.
You’ve just about survived a Lithuanian weddings
Lithuanians know how party so it’s no surprise that a wedding generally means a major blow-out.
From a welcome shot of vodka to all the dancing, in Lithuania the bigger and louder the wedding, the better!
The celebrations can go on from anywhere up to two full days with large, hearty meals and lots (and we mean lots) of alcohol commonplace.
Weddings are important because they are about family. And we know that family is vital to Lithuanians so it’s no surprise that even if they have moved abroad, they will still want to keep in touch.
That’s why most of them use Ding to send fast and reliable top up to loved ones back home.
We’re working with operators such as Tele2 to make sure that keeping in touch could never be simpler.
